Hi,

My friend is looking for a new laptop and he'll be using it mainly for engineering/graphing programs, such as googlesketchup, sap2000, matlab etc. and also a bit of gaming.

I'm thinking a dedicated GPU is better for the graphing programs, than a integrated one.( Correct me if I'm wrong)

What I'm not sure about is the choice of CPU. Debating between, Core 2 Duo, i3, or the Phenom II Triple Cores.

Budget is around $700-$800 USD

I was looking at these:

Any suggestions is appreciated and thanks in advance!

I think my friend wants to purchase the laptop before school starts, because his old one BSOD on him and doesn't work anymore. So between those 3 cpus, which one would be better for his use?

Thanks
