Hi everyone.
I want to buy a new laptop and i want to do a little gaming. Which one of these 2 computers do u recomend me? Becaus i see that in benchmarking, the intel HD takes a higher score than the HD 4200. But the HD 4200 is an ATI and maybe it will perform beter. What do you think?

- DV4 2145dx
Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2,3GHz, 1mb cache)
4GB DDR2
320gb HDD
ATI HD 4200 (with 128mb display cache and up to 1918mb shared)


- DV4 2165dx
Intel Core i3 330m (2.13GHz, 3mb L3)
4GB DDR3
500GB HDD
Intel HD Graphics (up to 1696mb Shared)

Overall Turion M520 + ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 will perform better in gaming.

Intel HD may have scored higher in benchmarks because of the pull from a faster processor.
In real-world scenario Mobility Radeon 4200 will perform faster.

On a side note: If you are looking at the benchmarks posted in some sites such as Notebookcheck then don't rely on that as most of the scores submitted there are garbage and unoptimized.

FYI, my laptop (Toshiba L555D-S7005) scored 3.5K in 3DMark05, 4K in 3DMark03, 9.5K in 3DMark01.
