Hi, I'm looking to spend around £400-£500 on a new laptop. It has to have at least 6GB of RAM and a pretty speedy processor (preferable core series if Intel), can anyone recommend me a decent one that fir those specs and which out of the below would be the better choice. Thanks for any help!

I've found these two so far, but seeing as I know absolutely nothing about AMD processors I have no idea which is the best out of the Quad-core AMD A8-3530M processor and a Intel core i5 processor.

does it make a difference that the website is all in $ rather than pounds? I just want something that's going to last a while but still in the price bracket.

Also I'm not sure If I agree with your ram sentence. I'm currently using 3.4GB out f 6GB on the laptop I'm on now and that's not really doing anything at all.
