Dell studio 15 i5-430m or HP pavillion 16 i7-720qm Tags: Hewlett Packard Intel i7 Dell Intel i5 Laptops Last response: January 22, 2010 8:03 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share LosAng1981 January 22, 2010 3:36:45 PM Dell studio 15 i5 430m 2.53ghz HD4670 $999 HP Pavillion 16 i7-720qm 1.6ghz GT230m $1049 I'm going to be doing little to no gaming, web surfing, light photo editing and some music production. Mostly using the laptop to watch movies, surf the web, and word processing. I want to know for overall quality of the laptops which is better. The HP seems a bit flimsy. And is the HP worth the $49.

The i5 will be enough for light music production and editing, and the 4670 is the stronger GPU, which is what will matter in the long run. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
