Inspiron 17r or NP550P5C..Confused which 1 to buy.need help

Hey guys i want to buy a new laptop but a bit confused betweeen these 2 laptops..

Here are the specs of these 2 laptops:

::::::::::Samsung NP550P5C-S02:::::::::

intel i7 3610QM-2.3 GHz with turbo boost upto 3.3 GHz

NVIDIA GT 650M-2 GB DDR3


::::::::::DELL INSPIRON 17R SPECIAL EDITION::::::::

intel i5 3210M-2.5 GHz With Turbo Boost upto 3.10 GHz

NVIDIA GT 650M-2 GB GDDR5

(i m not bothered about the rest of the specs)

I m confused because ,as gddr5 has twice bandwidth than the ddr3,so it will result in a better performance but having i5-3210m(which is half the performance of i7-3610qm) will result in a decrease in the performance ..So,from overall point of view, i suppose the performance of both the laptops will be balanced...Then again having i7-3610qm i can play those games releasing in the near future which will require quad cores instead of dual core...So i have set my mind of buying NP550P5C-S02IN but don't know whether my decision will be in my favour or not...Hence i want ur valuable opinions on this...So plss do help me :)..I JUST WANT THE BEST PERFORMANCE FOR GAMING..So according to that give ur opinions..

  1. Are you buying the laptop exclusively for gaming? What is your budget and your location? How much portable does it need to be? What about battery life?
  2. Yaa buying it exclusively for gaming...My location is India,dell budget=62000 indian rupees( $1130),samsung budget=58000 rupees($1060),not bothered of portability,
    dell battery=6 hrs,samsung battery=3 hrs...
  3. Srryy for the late reply.........Yaa buying it exclusively for gaming...My location is India,dell budget=62000 indian rupees( $1130),samsung budget=58000 rupees($1060),not bothered of portability,
    dell battery=6 hrs,samsung battery=3 hrs...
  4. Is there any reason you're buying a laptop if you need it for games and you won't be carrying it around? You could get three times as powerful desktop for the same price.
  5. I said,i m not bothered about portability means not bothered about portability of these two laptops as dell(17") has 3.5 kgs & samsung(15.6") has 2.5 kgs which is quite portable..
  6. So plss dont compare it with desktops :)& give me the solution between these two..
  7. I'd take the Dell. It has bigger screen, faster graphics card, higher resolution - in short - better suited for gaming.

    Dude can u call me on my mobile??

    I am in the same confusion...

    I think samsung is gud choice...
    Coz..
    Anti reflective screen...
    Pixel size is small I.e. more quality
    Bluray
    8GB
    Corei7
    Less money
  10. give me ur email id..we can discuss more on it :)
  11. i finally decided to buy inspiron 17r se after seeing this video on youtube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfis7_buOMo
  12. i have also read the reviews on http://www.notebookcheck.net and found some cons in samsung np550p5c like display quality is not so good though it has anti reflective screen, aslo it has some heating problem and u can also check the default clock speeds of nvidia gt 650m in both the laptops..
    samsung-2gb ddr3-deafault core clock 410 MHz,memory=900 MHz,turbo core clock upto 950 MHz

    dell-2gb ddr5-deafault core clock 745 MHz,memory=1000 MHZ,turbo core clock=835 MHz
    Again on heavy loading both the laptops drops to their original core clock speeds..If that happens then the performance of samsung will drop to a very low level(410MHz) which is not in the case of dell(745 MHz)..
