What kind of set up are you looking at for the Clevo, i.e. your choices aren't saved in the link? What are your plans for either, i.e. gaming, etc...?

I will be doing some gaming but no hardcore stuff like crysis or metro 2033. I wanted to have the =$60 HD screen for the clevo and basically a core i3 that i already have. I am going to buy 4 GB of memory off ebay and i currently have a 250 GB 7200 2.5" hard drive that i will be using. So basically i will be using the same cpu, ram and hdd for either one of these choices.

P.S. Starcraft2 is the only game i play. Other than that, i basically use it for the usual internet, movies, music, etc..

if you compare the graphics card then definitely the 2nd one is much better as both have same processor, but if you want 1080p screen in laptop then go with 1st (gt425 is 20-25% slower than 5730 and 5-10% slower than ati 5650, but it consumes power very much)

the clevo which u mentioned in 530$ is without processor and ram and hdd, after adding them price is going to normal (i.e: 750-800$) Considering that if you are hard budget go with 2nd one. Also the graphics card in MSI(5730) is 20-25% more powerful than GT425 in clevo

And yes 5730 will handle Crysis on high graphics and Metro 2033 on medium without lag.
