Nvidia GPU is some what better. The intel cpu is moderately better. So the 650$ is the better computer but not be a vast margin as far as specs. But I personally do not like AMD CPUs so I would get the i5

The core i5 processor is much more powerful and the A8 series processors. It can handle a lot more load.

Much more? This is an ultra book i5 not a normal i5...

?

An ultra book does not use as "high grade" an i5 due to heat concerns so that specific i5 is not as powerful as a general i5 which the benchmarks show.

Do you see the "U" at the end of the name "i5 3317U" that means it was designed for an Ultrabook and that it is a lower grade as far as performance...... This can not be any clearer lol
