Hey guys,

I am looking at these two laptops and I don't know which one to pick:

http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-A53Z-AS61-15-6-Inch-Laptop-M...

I will be using this for college and mhm... basically I am looking for one that is faster for school applications, like Microsoft Office and Maplesoft. Also, it will be great if I can watch movies and maybe some small games. I am also open for other suggestions.

While I am at it, can I just ask you guys like, how important is a dedicated graphic card in my case, like, do I have to look for a laptop that has a dedicated graphic or can I just find one that has a solid CPU.

ASUS all the way. I don't like brand bashing but Samsung's laptop range has never been brilliant! A seperate GPU is always a bonus, for me anyway, but its always down to personal choice.

I have both Toshiba and Asus laptops, both very different,

Have a look at http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-Satellite%C2%AE-L755D-S51...

Its $40-50 more than the other two but pound for pound spec and performance look substantially better.
