AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M 1.9GHz or Intel Core i5 3210M 2.5GHz

Which is better for everyday use? It will not be used for gaming, I don't think.
The two laptops that are being considered right now are these: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+Inspiron+15.6%26%2334%3B+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive+-+Black/6963692.p?id=1218817157050&skuId=6963692

There's a 70 dollar difference, and the 17.3 inch screen is very appealing to the person who wants the laptop, but he also wants a Dell. What do you guys think? How do the processors and GPUs compare? Is it worth spending 70 more dollars to get a smaller screen but better hardware and to fulfill the Dell request?

  1. Hello... Intel I5
  2. Most definantly worth getting the Intel laptop. Honestly, Intel CPU's seem to outperform AMD CPU's 9 times out of 10. Unless you will be gaming, I'd go with Intel.
