Lenovo Y580 or ASUS G55VW Tags: Multitasking Asus Lenovo Multimedia Gaming Laptops Last response: July 20, 2012 5:13 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share abosambool July 18, 2012 9:09:06 PM Which one should I get for gaming and multimedia/multitasking purposes and why? I'm mainly looking for a stable gameplay experience (mid-high settings) and endurance to handle multiple (sometimes heavy) tasks at once http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/laptop/ideapad/y-seri... http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g55vwrs71-p-4474.html More about : lenovo y580 asus g55vw math1337 July 18, 2012 9:20:01 PM The ASUS will have slightly better CPU performance with its IB processor. There will not be a big difference between them, especially since you can customize. I recommend you "customize" both to the settings you want, then get the cheaper one. abosambool July 19, 2012 4:59:29 AM I see. Well if I'm to order from XoticPC.com Do you recommend installing the IC DIamond Thermal Compound or is it just a waste of a 35$? Edit:Now that I think of it, how reliable is bandhphoto.com when it comes to international orders?
