    So I've been looking for decent laptops that are around $400 and found one that caught my eye.
    The thing is that I'm torn between 2 versions of the same model and so I wanted y'alls thoughts on it.

    This is the one I'm leaning more towards, processor-wise
    -

    This is the other which is cheaper
    -

    I'm a sucker for a large keyboard :tongue: Anyway the only real difference, besides price, seems to be the A8 and i5 processors. I'm looking to use the laptop for animation, programs like Rhinoceros, and occasional gaming(nothing major just elsword and emulators for PS2 and N64). Hardware isn't my forte but that seems pretty cheap for an i5 which is why I'm leaning towards the first one.
    That's about it so let me know what you guys think and whether or not these are pieces of crap that just sound good.
    :awe:

    go with the intel one, unless you need a new heater for your home. i generally don't like to get AMD processors in laptops because of their heat output due to their high TDP

    That i5 is going to outperform that A8 by at least an order of magnitude. They're really not even comparable chips.

    Laptops are generally not worth it in the long term, hard to customise and parts go out of date real quick lol
