I'm in the midst of purchasing a laptop for my own personal use.

I'm big into gaming and i am also big into system building and tinkering (when i can afford it)

I am currently looking at 2 laptops. Granted, they may not be considered "Gaming Laptops" im sure either of them will make me happy without a doubt.


What i need to know is, which should i buy? Im not willing to do any overclocking.

Whichever laptop i buy, will have its RAM replaced with 16GB and an SSD to improve their performance so i need that taken into consideration as well for the outcome.


Both will run Windows 8

The Contenders:

The first is the HP Envy 15z-j100
Customized with the following:

AMD A10- 5750m
2GB AMD Radeon 8750M Discrete
6GB DDR3 (as mentioned before will be replaced with 16GB high end)
750GB HDD 5400RPM (Will also be replaced with a 320 SSD down the road)


The second laptop.

HP Envy 15t-j100
Customized with the following:

4thGen Intel Core i5-4200M
Nvidia Gforce GT 750M 4GB
6GB ram (will be replaced with 16)
1TB HDD 5400RPM (also will be replaced with SSD)



WIth that information, which laptop will preform better overall... will one lack more in one thing than in the other?

Ive heard that having the AMD's APU and adding more RAM increases its preformance to a degree.


Also the AMD would be utilizing Dual GPU's (APU and the Radeon in the first laptop)
But the Intel based laptop has a dedicated 4GB..



Im torn here, What should i do!!!


Thank you all for your information and help, it is most certainly appreciated!!!

You will be much happier if you limit your gaming to a desktop computer.

The intel-4200m is much faster than the a10, and the GT 750M is faster than the 8570m, for gaming there is no doubt the second one will be faster.
