Difficult Laptop Choice

I am planning yo buy a new laptop but im not sure which one exactly. Im gonna mainly play video games, such as LoL, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 and I have in mind 2 laptops. First one has :
Intel Core i5-3317U (1.7 - 2.6 GHz, 3MB cash)+

and the second one has
Intel Core i5-3210M (2.5 - 3.1 GHz, 3MB cash)
AMD Radeon 7670M с 2GB DDR3.

The difference in price is really slight so I would appreciate an answer that would help me to get the better laptop :)

  2. Not enough information.....I certainly wouldn't use either of those notebooks to play games at 1920 x 1080. Both GPU's rank in the 140's .... yes, it does mean worse than 140th place among laptop GPU options.


    Id want at least a 660M or 7850M.

    Ya didn't mention what the price was but having the laptop custom built does offer a lot of flexibility. I'd look at a Clevo .... yeah ya never heard of Clevo but the laptops you have heard of .... you heard of the people who put their logs on them, not the people who actually make em.

    CLEVO is a large Taiwanese computer company specializing in laptops. While the Clevo brand name is perhaps not widely known, their products are re-branded and sold by known boutique brand OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers)… notably Sager, VoodooPC, Falcon Northwest, Eurocom, etc.
    They are also considered (by whoever knows about notebooks) to design and manufacturer the best of the best notebooks in terms of superior build quality and innovative designs.

    The vast majority of laptops on the market (94% in 2011) are manufactured by a small handful of Taiwan-based Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), although their production bases are located mostly in mainland China. Major relationships include

    Quanta sells to (among others) HP, Lenovo, Apple, Acer, Toshiba, Dell, Sony, Fujitsu and NEC
    Compal sells to (among others) Acer, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo and HP/Compaq
    Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to Dell, Acer, Lenovo and HP
    Inventec sells to Toshiba, HP and Lenovo
    Pegatron sells to Asus, Toshiba, Apple, Dell and Acer
    Foxconn sells to Asus, Dell, HP and Apple
    Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP
    Clevo sells to VoodooPC, WidowPC, FalcolnNorthwest, Sager and was the original manufacturer of Alienware laptops before they were purchased by Dell.

    See what works for ya here:

  3. Get the one with the higher clocked i5. It'll seriously help in Starcraft 2.
  4. 2Nd laptop because processing power is higher.
