Which is better for everyday use? It will not be used for gaming, I don't think.
The two laptops that are being considered right now are these: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+Inspiron+15.6%26%2334%3B+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive+-+Black/6963692.p?id=1218817157050&skuId=6963692

There's a 70 dollar difference, and the 17.3 inch screen is very appealing to the person who wants the laptop, but he also wants a Dell. What do you guys think? How do the processors and GPUs compare? Is it worth spending 70 more dollars to get a smaller screen but better hardware and to fulfill the Dell request?

Most definantly worth getting the Intel laptop. Honestly, Intel CPU's seem to outperform AMD CPU's 9 times out of 10. Unless you will be gaming, I'd go with Intel.
