I5-3210M or the i5-2450M?

Hi i am buying a laptop with a budget of £500 and found 3 laptops. I was wondering which would be better to play games on at low/medium settings but also to do work on. I am off to Uni at the end of the year and don't want to get a desktop as i need the mobility that a laptop provides.

1st spec: i5-3210M paired with the GPU Radeon HD 2gb 7670M DDR3.
2nd spec: i5-2450M paired with the GPU Radeon HD 7470M.
3rd spec: AMD A8-4500M with AMD Radeon HD 7640G Discrete-Class.

I would like to know which is best for light gaming on games like: WoW, GW2, Dayz e.t.c.
The laptop will also be used for work.
Lastly the screen resolution for all 3 is 1366 x 768.

Cheers :)

    I think the 1st one will be the best. i own a i5-3210M with 1GB 7670M DDR3. I experienced most of the games at a combination of medium and high settings,they is no lag.And 2GB 7670M would definitely satisfy your needs. Wish you Have a great experience with your new laptop.

    Cheers mate i will most likely get it then :D only £450 :)
  2. Like Saimo said, The first one is definitely your best choice.

    Basically the way you have them listed is how they are ranked performance wise. As always when you get the computer you can run this link below and see how you rank up performance wise for the game you wish to play.


    You should be able to maintain 45+ FPS on Medium settings for the games you have listed.
