The A8 has a much better IGPU for gaming, its actually pretty good full stop. so that's what you want.

Ok thanks and this has nothing to do with CPUs and stuff but is the windows 8 good because I heard lots of bad reviews about it so should I get the windows 7 instead

Web browsing depends on your service provider. The CPU does not have any affect on web performance unless it is so slow that it needs time to process things.

As for playing games, if you are solely relying on the integrated graphics, then the A8 would be the better option.

Yeah but thatbdoesnt matter because even though its that low the benchmark is still higher than things like that are like intel pentium 2.4 ghz which supposedly has higher ghz

You are better off with the following laptop for the same price... well actually it does cost $1.99 more. Start collecting empty soda & beer cans.

- A8-4500m @1.9GHz
- Dedicated Radeon HD 7670m graphic card. Huge improvement to integrated alone.

Hp has a 25% malfunction rate, Acer 23.3% and Asus only has a 12% malfunction rate.

Edit: Asus is 15.6 or 12 they have two for some reason

windows 8 works fine, you might need to take 20 mins and learn the basics by reading a guide but generally I find it as good if not better than windows 7.
