I would recommend the A6 for a general use laptop but given as you don't do any GPU intensive tasks, the B960 will probably be technically faster slightly in those programs.

so, B960 is better choice for that purpose? yes....i'll not do an intensive gaming. i'll more use it for designing task.
and again, how far the performance different, b960 againts i3-series (with hd3000) ?

the b960 will be only slightly slower than the i3 and you really should see much difference. The HD3000 is ok but the 610m is a bit faster.

can photoshop/ilustrator/premiere use all cores in A6 efficiently? if thats right, i'll go for A6.
thanks

so, in real-world task, theres no much difference between b960 and i3?

Adobe programs will get more performance from the 7670M and the onboard APU graphics. Just make sure you enable GPU acceleration in the settings of each program.
