which is better? help me choose please.

i am planning to buy a notebook. actually, i don't have a particular purpose for buying. so it's for everything, office, school, etc. i just want to replace my old one and as a graduation gift.

i may be playing games also. games like nba 2k13 and nfs most wanted 2012. and try (just try, if possible) newer titles like far cry 3, crysis 3, battlefield and call of duty.

i also don't have experience having notebooks with 15" and larger. i want to stick with a 14" but i want to try a 15". but never a 17", that's way too big.

here are my choices (i'm on a budget) :

MSI GE60 ONC-I3145+
15.6" HD (1366X768) LED NON-GLARE
I3-3110 2.4GHZ
4GB ram
500GB
NVIDIA GT650M 2GB GDDR5
PHP 30,000 (about $750)

and

LENOVO IDEAPAD G480
14" wxga led (1366x768)
I5 3230M 2.6ghz - 3.2ghz
8GB ram
500GB
NVIDIA GT635 2GB DDR3
PHP 29,000 (about $725)


SO WHICH IS A BETTER CHOICE? AND WHY? THANKS.

    Hi :)

    NEITHER will play FC3 or CRYSIS 3 well...you NEED to ADD another $1000 to $2000 MORE for that, or build a GAMING PC...

    All the best Brett :)
