Thanks! Mostly word processing, some photo/video editing and streaming movies to my tv. The Intel has integrated HD Graphics 3000 and the AMD has Radeon HD 6620G. I'm just not sure how closely these two compare. I'm not currently a big gamer but I'm not ruling out getting into one:)  This would be replacing my current super old Sony Vaio that has lasted me 6 years.
