Gateway NV75S17u vs. ASUS K-series?

So I'm looking for a new laptop (not totally for gaming, mostly for multitasking/more intensive Internet use, etc etc) and right now my two options are listed below. Recs? All thoughts appreciated!

1-- Gateway NV75S17u
CPU-- AMD A8--3500M (quad-core @1.50GHz, 4 MB L3).
Videocard-- Haven't searched/found much, but I know it's a 512 MB dedicated.

2-- ASUS K-series
CPU-- Core i7 2670QM (quad @2.2GHz, 6 MB L3).
Video-- Integrated Intel® GMA HD

I'd really like to keep the price under ~$700 but I could probably scrounge for the ASUS if it's really worth it. If you guys had any other recs, I'd certainly love to hear them! Thanks!

    Got a link to check?
    Here is a $600 Gateway NV75S17u and it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card - just the Radeon HD 6620G IGP.

    Some options:
    TOSHIBA Satellite L755-S5354 15" Notebook $630
    Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz) 4GB RAM, 640GB HDD, 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M
    TOSHIBA Satellite P775-S7365 17" Notebook $700
    Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz) 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD 17.3" 1600x900 LCD w/ Intel HD 3000 Graphics

    For better all round multi-tasking plus decent gaming under $700 I like this Dell XPS 17 for $694
    Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 17.3" 1600x900 LCD w/ Geforce GT 550M graphics.
  2. Comparison of Mobile Processors (CPU Benchmarks)
    Intel Core i5-2430M @ 2.4GHz ranked #44
    AMD A8-3500M @ 1.4Ghz ranked #136
