Thanks a bunch More about : dual graphics performance single gpu performance akxpckwb March 20, 2012 9:58:56 PM If both cards are the same then, by logic, more=better. However the i5 is one hell of a CPU. But I'm just running my mouth here I don't know crap about laptops popatim a b À AMD March 21, 2012 12:06:25 AM The I5 is the better processor if you play cpu hungry games like SC2.

But I'm just running my mouth here I don't know crap about laptops Both GPU's are not the same. The Radeon HD 7690XT is rated better over the Radeon HD 7690 by 15% according to NotebookCheck The AMD A8-3520M is rated #21 for current CPU's, and the i5-2450M is rated at #13 So, the i5-2450M + Radeon HD 7690XT is better rated in both CPU and GPU standings. I was actually thinking about getting that setup myself, but I am really hoping to find a i7-2760QM or i7-2860QM with at least an upper Class 2 GPU like the Radeon HD 7690XT or better for around $1000.00 So far all I've found with the i7-2760QMs are the Nvidia GeForce 540M's around $850, and I just don't think it'll be enough for high settings 2 or 3 years down the road. It's a late response no doubt, but I'm sure people are buying these laptops. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
