More about which configuration price same pretty heavy user
  1. If the "gam" at the end of the title was actually "gaming" but cut off, the obvious choice is the first one. The on-die Intel GPU in the 2nd option sucks for gaming, while the first one at least has a dedicated graphics card. It's not exactly a "gamer" GPU, though. But it's definitely better than the Intel option.
