The Acer one (with the A6-4400M) is more cost effective. The I5-3210M is faster, but for gaming it won't have a big enough advantage to justify it. The Z580 is not a special laptop and there is no good reason to buy it for that price.

If you want to spend 550$ to get higher performance, get one of these:

Both HP, both offer the highest gaming performance for the money under 600$ currently. The HP dv6z-7000 is quite nice and also has good battery times.
I want to do that my only issue is i will be moving on the 15 will how long will it prbably take to get it? Also since the 7730m does not crossfire, will there really not be much of a difference gaming with which a6 vs a8?

1. CFx many times doesn't really work
2. CFx of 6620G and 7670M is slower than the 7730M according to benchmarks
3. CFx with 7730M will probably work someday


You will be much better off just getting the 7730m instead of trying to get the 6620g+7670m. The micro stuttering due to the graphic sets being so far apart will probably be unbearable, if it were an A10-4600m with the 7660g I would say ya it may be worth it but as it is not, I would not risk it personally. And Junky is right, the dual graphics is not supported by many games and thus you will be using only the 7670m which is not as good as the 7730m.

completely understandable. If you can hold off I would wait till you have your new address. I can almost guarantee that if you have a laptop built somewhere it will not make it in time.

IF you can't wait, then I would suggest the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as you will be more than happy with it and it is the better choice for the price. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed and newegg is pretty quick about shipping. Just understand that you will most likely need to upgrade the ram to 1600Mhz since the AMD APU is a hog. But that is something that can wait till later.

There is no guarantee. I just placed an order with HP yesterday and it's not schedualed to be complete till the 10th. So I can understand why he would be hesitant.

I don't have that acer model so unfortunately I can not give you first had information about it. But I can direct you to more information about it all.

a6-4400m
http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-A-Series-A6-4400M-Note...

AMD HD 7670m
http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7670M.69483....

7520g + 7670m dual graphics
http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7520G-HD-767...

As far as gaming performance goes according to notebookcheck.net it is as follows:
640m > 7520g+7670m > 7670m > 630m > 540m

That is assuming the game can take advantage of the hybrid crossfire.

i know that drivers for it re getting better as time goes on. my old laptop was an A10 7660g. so i guess this will technically better. it would be nice to hear from someone who has used hybrid crossfire.
