  1. id take the i5
  2. darren0000 wants a crap laptop for gaming, IDK why. The i5's IGP is junk compared to the A10's IGP. It's not even half as good.

    Will you buy a graphics card?
  4. There are no new external graphics card solutions for laptops so no im pretty sure he's not buying one.Well he could buy a 5 year old HD 3870M but... it's pretty useless.
    So yeah the AMD is just much, much , much... better(for gaming).There shouldn't even be a comparison between them.
  5. Technically, OP could buy an external wired PCIe or thunderbolt solution for external graphics, but, well, it doesn't work all that well, its pretty expensive, and it's bothersome to set up and take apart.
