Hey Dudes! I'm currently saving for a laptop for schoolwork (currently a high school sophomore) and i'm looking for some used on eBay. I will be purchasing it in a few months. In the $400 range we are looking at multiple 3rd Generation i5's with hd 4000 graphic chips or the amd 4600m APU's with the 7660g chip. I would like the power and smoothness of the i5 but I want to play games too and that's where the AMD wins. I would like opinions on both from people with first hand experience on these laptops.

what kind of games? all these laptops with intel HD 4000 will not game smoothly, the 7660 will do since you want to be able to game too. the i5 will be a better CPU, but you cant game. The AMD is a weaker CPU but the GPU will allow you to game.

I'm wanting to play CS:GO on the Laptop as well as some RPG's like Skyrim. I know that CSGO would work well on the intel, but unsure on skyrim
