Greetings:

Are these the machines you're considering?

If so, the HP seems the winner with 2 GB of dedicated GPU, so on paper it should have more power for gaming. But 2 GB of RAM isn't going to get you very far with modern games, and it's also in the low end for school work (office programs).

In order to run DotA 2, Steam lists a minimum of 4 GB of RAM and GameDebate 2 GB minimum/ 4 GB recommended. As for graphics, the integrated Intel HD 5500 in the i3 5005U should be able to run the game on its own, but even with a dedicated 1 GB of GPU it's probably going to be at low-to-medium settings with resolution at 720p. The AMD A8-7410 relies on the 2 GB R5 M330 card which has more memory than the GeForce card, but it nevertheless loses to the 920M in the gpuboss.com tests. So, both machines are equally good/bad.

My advice is to go with the HP (which is also less expensive), simply because it seems more usable, maybe not for gaming, but for everything else.

Best of luck,
GreyCatz.

Is HP 15-af005ax (M9U58PA)
have 2 Ram slot or just only 1 ram slot? Ram i will upgrade to future, up to 8gb (4gb x 2 / 8gb x 1)

Actually i don't really trust game-debate, cpuboss or something like that
I am always looking for reviewers' opinions

Anyway thanks for your reply and your golden advise.

Hello, jyjyjy:

As far as I can tell from HP's homepage, it only has 1 RAM slot and total memory is capped at 2 GB. If you're interested in reviews, here's one about HP:
