More about which laptop gaming these
  1. Depends on the games you play really and how they stress the cpu/gpu

    Judging by the games you are playing I would grab the first laptop since you will want a beefier cpu over a stronger gpu. The 630m will be limited to 720/768p medium while the 640m can play at high
  2. Are you sure, I'm just really stuck on the cpu of the first one and then the superior gpu of the second one... Will the 1.7 still do all the normal daily things without a struggle??
  3. I run on a phenom II x4 2ghz n930 laptop which is like slower than the i5 in IPC and my biggest bottleneck is not the CPU but my HDD
