AMD: APU: A8-3550MX Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7690M 1gb GDDR5 Discrete Graphics Memory: 6gb DDR3 HDD: 640gb Hard Drive Intel: CPU: 3rd Generation Intel i7-3610QM (2.3ghz) Graphics: Nvidia GT 650M Graphics 2gb GDDR5 Memory 8gb DDR3 HDD: 1tb Hard Drive I know the Intel sounds better but Im not sure how the i7 performs against the A8 APU with Accelerated Graphics.
