I'm deciding between two computers and not sure which one to get.

Lenovo IdeaPad 15.6" Intel Core i7-3520M Laptop (P580)

Processor Cores: 2
Processor Speed: 2.9 GHz
Processor Cache:4 MB L3
Hard Drive Capacity: 750 GB
Hard Drive Speed (Revolutions Per Minute): 5400 rpm
RAM Size: 8 GB

RAM Speed: 1600 MHz
RAM Slots: 2 Available
Approximate Battery Life: Up To 5 Hours
Battery Type: Lithium Ion
Battery - Number of Cells: 6
Battery - Capacity: 4400 mAh

The second laptop is HP Pavilion DV6-7870ca
Processor Type Intel Core i7-3610QM
Processor Cores 4
Processor Speed 2.30 GHz
Processor Cache Information Not Available

They are relatively similarly priced (Lenovo is $100 cheaper than the HP)

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated!
