Intel i3-330m vs. phenom ii x4 n930

I am buying a used laptop and both have rather similar specs (4gb ram, hd 5650 gpu)

However one is an acer aspire 5552g and it has a phenom ii x4 n930 quad core cpu @ 2.0ghz

The other is a gateway nv59 laptop and it has an intel i3-330m dual core cpu


I will be using this for gaming, the gateway is about $30 cheaper but i wanted to know if there would be a gaming performance hit when choosong the dual core over the quad core, and also the gateway has a 120gb ssd and the acer has a 500gb hdd

Thanks
In advance

  1. Here is the best side I know of to look up laptop CPU's and GPU's http://www.notebookcheck.net/FAQ-Tips-Technics.123.0.html
    Looks like there is not much between them in performance.
  2. Okay so if the performance is very close then what is a better brand,
    Gateway or acer? I like the look of gateway better because imo it doesnt look as cheap as acers products but i really dont know what is a better brand
  3. Bump

    Anyone else want to share their experiences with acer or gateway? It would be very appreciated :)
