Hello. Im planning to buy an HP laptop and i have 2 possible configurations and also i am budget conscious. I want to keep it below 700$ preferably 650$.
Im confused between A10-4600 with HD7730m
or i5-3210 IVY bridge with HD7670m
I also have an option of choosing the 1GB or the 2GB version of the graphic cards. I am not a fan of the NVIDIA as i have had a bad experience with it.
If i go with trinity i will be able to buy a bigger and faster HDD (DV series) on the other hand, the Trinity (g6 series) will give me and intel processor which I am more comfortable with but a smaller HDD. I have never used an AMD processor but whatever reviews i have read, i have observed that IVY bridge is FAR better than the A10-4600. please help me choose the right configuration and the right laptop.
use Photoshop, premiere pro, and play games like CS-GO, COD and if i have a good graphic card then i would load better games too. But video and photo editing take the front seat for me.
I'll do what I didn't do in the other thread: For gaming, go with the A10/7730m combo. For non-gaming (Photoshop and all that), go with the i5/7670m. Choose which is more important and buy that laptop.
