So I am looking for a budget laptop for gaming/work. I play league of legends and counter strike. I guess I'm losing myself in cuda cores and cpu/gpu type, gen, etc. the last computer I built was with amds release of the fx-55. (Was about $500 cpu back then) so my dilemma is which is the better choice: A refurbished Intel m4500 with i7-620m 2.66 dual core(1st gen), 1GB Quadro FX 880m gpu, 8GB ddr3 ram and 250gb SSD HD for $200 or a new Asus x555da-as11 with AMD A10-8700P 1.8 GHz quad core CPU, 8GB ddr3 ram, Radeon R5 series gpu (I can't even figure out any info on this gpu), 250GB SSD HD for $400. Now I imagine the $400 is obviously better, but what difference am I seeing, the cuda cores for the refurbed m4500 is 48, is that even enough to run the two games I play? I guess I am asking is the $200 going to show significant increase and is it worth it in my case? Or are these both crap options and I should get something completely different? Thanks for any input!
