So my question is what is better to buy! (on the laptop)
I got Toshiba with i5-2450m and Dell with i5-3317u! I'm confused since i5-2450m is 2.5ghz and i5-3317u is 1.9ghz. But I know 3rd gen is kinda better. Any help or advice?

Thank you.

In terms of performance there isn't going to be a huge, noticable difference between the two. What are the rest of the specs for both laptops?

The Dell is probably thinner and lighter, that's why its got the low voltage i5.

Battery: 3317u (by far)

I visited intel page and most of i5 3rd gen are low ghz =/

CPU difference will be basically nil between the two; current ULV i7s actually get close to Sandy Bridge standard voltage dual core i7s.

I'd take the Toshiba personally, though. The 7670M MIGHT be a little faster, but the GT 540M will have vastly easier (and more stable) driver upgrades.

The Radeon 7670M kicks the *** out of the GT 540M doesn't it?

no there about the same. 1o r 2 fps diff and at his rez they will be more about the cpu then the gpu.
