I have to decide between HP with i3-350M with dedicated graphics(ATI Radeon 512MB) vs HP i5-430M without dedicated graphics.

Laptop will be used for programs such as Autocad, Photoshop etc.

For graphical applications the dedicated GPU will be the preferred option. However, I'm not sure how GPU vs CPU-dependant AutoCAD and Photoshop are.

There's not much acceleration to be expected from the 512 MB Radeon. So I'd say, go for the laptop with the better cpu, in this case, the hp i5-430m
