Hey guys,

I want to get a new laptop. I like fast laptops. I Dont do much gaming but I like photography alot and I do editing. Am not much on hard drive space so I don't really mind. I read a core i5 is faster than an i3 but am stuck between both samsung and hp. The samsung is a core i3 but with NVIDIA® GeForce® 710M Graphics with 1GB gDDR3 Graphic Memory (Optimus™), meanwhile the HP comes with Intel HD Graphics 4000. Here are other specs below

HP
Microprocessor:- 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5-3230M
Chipset:- Intel HM76 Express
Microprocessor Cache:- 3 MB L3 cache
Memory:- 4 GB DDR3
Memory Max:- Upgradeable to 8 GB DDR3 (2 DIMM)
Video Graphics:- Intel HD Graphics 4000 (up to 1.65 GB)
Hard Drive:- 500 GB 5400 rpm SATA
Display:- 39.6 cm (15.6") HD BrightView LED-backlit (1366 x 768)

Samsung
Processor / Chipset:- Intel® Core™ i3 Processor 3120M (2.50GHz, 3 MB L3 Cache) Intel HM75
Graphic:- NVIDIA® GeForce® 710M Graphics with 1GB gDDR3 Graphic Memory (Optimus™)
Memory:- 4GB DDR3 System Memory at 1,600MHz (4GB x 1)
2 SODIMM
Hard Drive:- 500GB S-ATAII Hard Drive (5,400RPM)

Any help here would be gladly appreciated. thanks for your advice and comments

The HP has the stronger CPU while the Samsung has the better graphics, Hp also looks to be an easier upgrade path to 8GB, think I'd go the HP for what you mention, it will still game OK for a laptop, but I'd prefer the CPU horsepower

Thank you. I usually thought a dedicated GPU was better.

Many will favor a better GPU for gaming, but for overall system use the CPU is the power component in a laptop (and having plenty of DRAM) ;)
