Hello,

Im gonna get a new laptop this week and i wanna know which laptop is better for gaming. I know the 1st laptop is faster on paper but the 2nd one has a higher resolution screen (1600x800) a 2gb version of the hd 7670m a blu ray player AND it is 20 euro cheaper. So do you notice any less frames while in games with the 2nd laptop? Cause they both have the same gpu. (except the vram) I want to play minecraft skyrim bf3 and far cry 3.

Laptop 1:
Amd a8-4500m 2,8ghz in turbo
Hd 7670m 1GB
4gb ram


laptop 2:
Pentium b950 2,1ghz
Hd 7670m 2GB
4gb ram
AND a higher resolution screen than the 1st laptop.

Thanks in advance

I'd like to hear back how well it works in BF3...

At any rate, I'd go with laptop 2.

And why would you go with laptop 2?
Laptop 1 is clearly faster?

I'd prefer the additional VRAM and nicer screen.

The CPU's speed doesn't tell a complete story of performance between AMD and Intel so you can't go off that.

shows the CPUs trading wins in different categories.


I just found a hp pavilion g7 on sale with a higher resolution screen 6GB of ram and the a8-4500m and hd 7670m in crossfire with the hd 7640g for 30 euro more than laptop 2 and 10 more than laptop 1. So i think i'll go with that one :)

Alright! Again, please post back here after you play with it and report the settings and frames you get. May help someone else down the line.
