Help me choose: Asus A42JV or Toshiba L640

Hi Guys, I am a bit confused which of the two I will buy soon. I am an average PC gamer so I choose between these two.

Asus A42JV -- (26900 TWD / 840 USD)
Core i5 460M
NVidia GT335M 1GB DDR3

Toshiba L640 -- (23800 TWD / 743 USD)
Core i3 370
ATI 5650 1GB DDR3

1. ATI 5650 supports DirectX 11, GT335 only DirectX 10.x. Can I play new games with DirectX 11 if I have GT335?

2. Core i3 has no turbo-boost compared to core i5. Is it worth the extra 100 USD for the Asus?

3. Brand talk, which do you prefer? Asus or Toshiba?

Thanks.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    1)No,you can play DX11 games but you can't use this feature
    2)No
    3)Both are good,but i would go with the Toshiba one because of having a notably faster VGA.
  2. Thanks Maziar. I am also thinking of waiting for the Sandy Bridge platform coming soon hopefully early next year. Might be worth the wait. But I am not sure about the price. Besides, the Nehalem platform probably will drop prices during the release of Sandy Bridge.
  3. If you need a laptop right now,then buy it :)
    If you wait,you can't every buy anything.
  4. 2nd one is better overall, but 1st one is better if you are not much conscious about gaming.
