Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a new laptop and have narrowed my search down to three laptops (although open to new suggestions).

The Acer E1-571 with a i7-3632QM 2.2GHz processor and 6Gb of RAM

The Acer E1-571 with a i5-3230M 2.6GHz processor and 8Gb RAM

The Lenovo G505s with a AMD A10-5750M 2.5GHz and 8Gb of RAM

I have a budget of around £500 so these fit perfectly into that. I use my laptop for watching a lot of videos, playing music and occasional casual gaming so need something that can handle multitasking pretty well. Don't particularly need anything with an amazing battery life or portability.

Which laptop would be the better option? I'm also unsure of how much difference the 8GB SSD in the Lenovo would make to the running speed of the computer?

Thanks in advance for your help!

a10 is fairly slow its comparible to i3 and graphics are decent but not strong for decent gaming

the rest are powerful processors crap intergrated graphics

so i will suggest this

i5 processor 2.6ghz
gt740 nvidia easily plays games on medium with high frames
