Narrowed it down to 2 laptops really, unless you can find better ones under $700 with better specs

I'll be using it code mainly but I will play games on it, most intensive probably being battlefield bad company 2 and fifa 13, other like minecraft and pcsx2, should I bother to get the i7? I'll hope to keep it for 3-5 years and will upgrade to the max ram each can take.

I also realize the i7 can get faster ram, so maybe I can give it 1600 ram.. what do you guys think?

P.S I'll mostly be playing minecraft, so maybe the better processor would be good for that?

but out of the 2, is quad core really necessary? should I just get the gt 630m with i5-2450m at $600?

I'll boost it to 8gb easy peasy esp since I cant give the toshiba a graphics card

like I said, I kinda want to run bfbc2 again and I know the gt 630m can do it, but I'm not sure about intel 4000 gfx
