Looking for a gaming laptop that will play Rift /WoW on high settings. I have been looking at the Lenovo with the GT 555m and the HP with the AMD 7690M GPU. They are both similarly priced between 700-800 dollars. Can anyone make any recommendations on which will be better or any other suggestions.
Hello and welcome to the forums !
7690M is slightly faster than 555M.So if the other specs are the same,go with the HP model.(within your price range,you can't find a laptop with a more powerful GPU,so your best choices are these 2 or similarly configured laptops from ASUS,Acer etc.)
Right now I plan on going with the HP as it is cheaper and has the 1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics(TM) [HDMI, VGA] I have only owned Intel CPU in the past so I was wondering how well the AMD Quad-Core A6-3420M Accelerated will pair with the GPU for gaming and if it would be worth upgrading the CPU. For 70 dollars more I would get AMD Quad-Core A8-3550MX Accelerated . Would it be a worthwhile difference?
