Hey guys, I'm currently in the process of buying a new laptop and was wondering what processor would do best for this task. I currently have a HP laptop with a phenom B960 quad core in it but today experienced a simulation 100%ing every core. What would be best for what I'm doing? Unfortunately I only have a small budget of £450 but I am willing to buy refurbished/second hand. Currently, I'm considering the a10-4600m in the packard bell easynote TV but I am willing to take opinions. I also enjoy light gaming and don't wish for fancy graphics, just playabilitty at a native res.
Would a first gen i7 work better or a 1st/2nd gen i5?
Sorry guys, in the future I will ensure that I include model numbers
Currently within my price range:
Packard Bell Easynote TV - AMD A10-4600M
Samsung NP300E5A - i5-2430M
Dell Inspiron N5110 (Same processor as above)
Dell Studion 1558 - i7-720QM
Would these provide an added bonus over my current CPU? Unfortunately, I use the passmark charts to compare the CPU's (I don't know how this forum stands on using these benchmarks) and that shows that the AMD one comes on top.
