Hey guys
Im in the market for a new laptop and the question comes down to cpu vs gpu

The one is a i5 560m 2.66ghz with 4 gb ram and a Ati HD5470

and the other is a i5 430m 2.26 ghz 4 gb ram and a Ati HD5650

The laptop will be used for half gaming and half for work.
so does anyone have any suggestions plz.

thx :)

What kind of work do u need it for?
U won't notice the difference between 2.26 and 2.66ghz if you don't do CPU intensive work.

Don't forget that there are other attributes like size, weight, battery life, keyboard&touchpad, etc.

If you plan on doing a little bit of gaming then definitely go for the better gpu(5650) as that will be the bottleneck for you.

I'd like to add that although the 5650 is better its not a very powerful gpu, what games do you intend on playing?
