So from what I've been gathering from about the A10, is that on paper the Ivy Bridge Intels will outperform. But in actual function the A10/7660m can hold it's own against an i5/630m matchup, and you get the added benifit of the A10s low power consumption which equates to longer battery life.
I've head that it's not a deal for an A10 laptop unless it's around the ~$500 mark.
Well, is it a good idea to pull the trigger, or is it likely there will be better deals for equally well performing laptops come Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
P.S. I'm just looking for a good laptop I can run Cisco's Packet Tracer simulator for school, and some minor gaming
bigity bump. I have an itchy trigger finger... Please someone talk me into it or talk me out of it lol I hear that BF and CM are going to be full of low-spec'd laptops for cheap. So is it too much wishful thinking hoping to catch a decent A10 chipped laptop?
