It seems "Radeon R16M-M1-30" is the part # referring to the Radeon R5 M430 dedicated GPU. It is actually a pretty weak GPU; Notebookcheck.net ranks it below the integrated Intel HD 620 graphics core in 7th generation Intel CPUs and it is only marginally better than the nVidia 910m.

Not sure which A10 APU you are referring to, but they are generally between the performance of a 4th or 5th generation Core i3 and Core i5 CPU.


I would get the laptop with the Core i3-6006u and nVidia 940mx which is a lot more powerful than the R5 430m. That vast majority of laptops allow you upgrade the RAM.
