Hi everyone.
I want to buy a new laptop and i want to do a little gaming. Which one of these 2 computers do u recomend me? Becaus i see that in benchmarking, the intel HD takes a higher score than the HD 4200. But the HD 4200 is an ATI and maybe it will perform beter. What do you think?

- DV4 2145dx
Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2,3GHz, 1mb cache)
320gb HDD
ATI HD 4200 (with 128mb display cache and up to 1918mb shared)

- DV4 2165dx
Intel Core i3 330m (2.13GHz, 3mb L3)
Intel HD Graphics (up to 1696mb Shared)

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
I don't know where you have looked but HD 4200M performs better(not much though because both are low end cards for gaming)
I would go for the second one because of having a faster CPU and more HDD but don't expect to play games smoothly on either one
