I am looking at two laptops, and not sure what to purchase. I need to know which one would better serve my use. I use a lot of high 3d graphics programs including gaming but also 3d digital editing. I am looking between
Intel® Core™ i7-720QM Processor (6M Cache, 1.60 GHz) this is a Sony VAIO with a 500Gig drive and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 1GB Graphics. - Not worried about the 500Gig drive as I have a 500Gig external.
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9000 (6M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) - this is an ASUS G72Gx-A1 with a 1TB drive and a dedicated nVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M 1GB Graphics.
Can someone please help me determine which one would best meet my need. Not real sure what the major difference between these processors but I need something that will be fast and powerful. Would I be better off with the ASUS or the VAIO? ASUS runs at 1600.00 while the VAIO is running at 1400.00.
If you are going to game then go for Q9000/GTX 260M otherwise if you don't want to game go for i7 model since i7 720M is faster than Q9000 and GTX 260M is faster than GT 330M and since most games are GPU limited then Q9000/GTX 260M performs quite significantly better than i7/GT 330M
