Core i7: 740qm VS 840qm???

Hello, I am updating my laptop to a dell xps 15 and have the choice of either: i7 740qm with 8 gb ram or i7 840qm with 6gb ram
What would be a better choice for HD playback (movies up to 15gb) and encoding?

  1. I would say any of the i7 8xx series would do good. Ask about upgrading RAM as well.

    Also, what is the storage capacity? HD takes up alot of space.
  2. Welcome to the forums!
    I just checked Dell's website,and you have to pay extra $325 for 840QM which isn't worth it at all(because its slightly faster),so stick with 740QM
