Hi guys, I am not sure which laptop is better for gaming, I am on a low budget so please dont say "thats crap you need this [link to 2K computer]"
when I use it for games I wont be running any other tasks other than the game itself, and I dont mean flash games I mean real games. I have searched the web for answers but its to confusing, I was just looking up hyperthreading then decided to ask you about everything. Here are the laptop specs
AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M (3.0GHz/2.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache) dual core and 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm) with 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7670M Graphics $540
I wouldnt mind upgrading to AMD Quad-Core(I DONT KNOW IF IT HAS HYPERTHREADING) A8-4500M (3.0GHz/2.1GHz, 4MB L2 Cache) for a total of $600
VS
3rd generation Intel Core i3-3110M (2.4 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) dual/quad processor(HAS HYPERTHREADING,GOOD???) and 4GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm) with NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M Graphics with 1GB of dedicated video memory for $580

what should I pick/ WHY I should pick it? what could i play?

I heard that the graphics cards are really important, here is the link to the competing graphics crads. scroll to # 27 and 28. their is little difference tho. I have no idea what this benchmark means, all i know is those cards are almost the same.

The AMD Radeon HD 7670M is a tad bit better compared to the Nvidia GeForce GT 630M. If gaming is your primary concern, getting the AMD laptop would be what i would suggest. Do get the quad core model if you can afford it.

P.S. - Hyper Threading is an Intel specific feature. No AMD CPU (server/desktop/mobile) bears that. Hyper Threading is mostly useless when it comes to gaming.
