Are these different?

Hey, first time posting. I'm currently in the market for a new laptop, and this one caught my eye: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215371

It seemed like a great bargain, and the best I've found. When I googled it to see if it was the best price I found some odd results. I found the laptop I had looked at, but then I found what looks like the exact same computer i a different color for $100 more! Can someone tell me if theres any difference between the two:

Also, any opinions on whether this is a good PC or not would be much appreciated. I mainly want it for gaming, but because I might be going to college in the near future, I'm not sure a desktop would be the best idea. If theres a better laptop for under $500, Id also be interested in it.

Thanks in advance:)

More about different
  1. the 2 laptops are definately different models, but the only difference i can see is possibly the frequency of the ram, as only one of them lists the frequency.

    as its only a 6250g it would be a waste of time for gaming however, unless you count age of mythology as gaming :P as its not particularly powerful

    if you want a gaming computer for under $500, desktops are definately the way to go as they can be upgraded when more money is available, and you get more bang for your buck with their parts in general

    I'm really only interested in a laptop, and from what I've seen in benchmark videos and forums this can run most games at at least low quality. I'm mostly interested in indie games, as I have a PS3 for most everything else. But for the price, compared to other laptops, would you say this is a good choice? Or should I start looking again?
  3. best laptop i can see for under $500, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328

    same cpu as your finds, 6gb ram, and a better graphics card (benchmarks at 729, your links benchmark at 429).

    basically, gain 2gb or ram, and 300 benchmark points on the gpu.
  4. How about this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-Quad-Core-320GB-Notebook/dp/B007GXN614/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3XVIVHBU891S&coliid=I3LC45C0K5I0SI

    I has a smaller HD, but I figured I could just upgrade that when I needed to, and the GPU seemed great for the money.
  5. i think for the price, its really jut a case of preference. the hdd will cost more than the savings in the long run, as well as it has 2gb less ram, in exchange for 90 points in the benchmark.

    lenovo also has a reputation of providing higher quality products.

    with a laptop, your gpu is never going to be awesome. personally, id stick with the lenovo, but they are basically equal excluding the hdd, in terms of complete system benchmarks.

    my l500/013 has a 4650 in it and that seems to cope with basic/mid graphics on most games
