  1. Best answer
    Based on this single benchmark of Dirt 3, the Radeon HD 6620G graphics core in the AMD A8-3500M APU is better than the Radeon HD 6370.

    The Phenom II is generally faster than the AMD A8 CPU core which uses the older Athlon II core when comparing clock for clock. However since the A8 is 600MHz faster then the Phenom II P960, that should make the A8 more powerful. Therefore, the Asus would be the better choice.

  4. not quite sure which one is better; however, I you want to take the laptop to class you will be better of having a 15.6" screen to fit on the school desks.
