Which Dell? AMD Phenom II N930 or Intel i5 450M

Hi there
I am confused as to which laptop I should get... There are 2 variants which are priced near about the same...

Use: Gaming, Running softwares like MAYA, 3ds Max, Internet etc
I need a really good performance Laptop, and the one with the Better GPU...

The Laptops have all similar configs except the CPU and GPU:
1. The AMD Lappie: CPU: AMD Phenom II N930 2.0 Ghz 2M 3.6 GT/s
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 550v 1GB

2. The Inter Lappie: CPU: Intel Core i5 450M 2.53 Ghz 3M
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5740 1GB

More about which dell phenom n930 intel 450m
  1. The 550v is much better performing, as per the last link in your references.

    It's a tough call for the CPUs for your uses because the amd has more cores but the i5 is much faster per core. I'd go with the i5. it more than makes up with the higher speed and HT.

    That said, if the graphics would serve you well, the 3 cores of the AMD would still be formidable.
  2. but then i5 would be more costlier than Amd phenon x4 n 930 isnt it ?
