Hey everyone, I've been recently looking for a new laptop and I'm down to two choices.

One is the HP DV6Z 7000 series. I'm planning to upgrade it to the A-8 4500M Processor with 2GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7730M Graphics.

The other is the Lenovo Y480. This laptop comes with the intel I-5 3120M and NVIDIA Geforce 640M LE.

I heard that the intel I-5 outclasses the AMD processors but it seems that the GPU for the 1st laptop is better. Which one is better for gaming? Thanks

Even though HD7730M is slightly better than the GT 640M LE I would suggest you to go with Lenovo as there is a huge difference in performance between A8 and the i5. The A8 doesn't even compete with the i3 (3rd Generation).And HD 7730 is only slightly better (7-9%) than GT640M LE so there won't be any significant difference between their visuals.
