My wife orderd me the lenovo flex 14 inch i5 3 and I wanted to know how is it compared to my old gateway NV55S09u? It has a 2.2 GHz processor 8gb ram Intel HD 5500 and 1 tb 5400 HD. My gateway had a AMD A6-340Om with 4gb ram and Radeon HD 6520G. I play swtor and perfect world online. I wanted a 2 in 1 so that is why she got it. Is this laptop better and how will it play those games vs my gateway? Thank you

The Core i5-5200u (I assume) and it's integrated Intel HD 5500 is a large step up from the weak A6-3400m and it's pretty weak Radeon HD 6520G.

I would say that the Intel Core i5 is probably around 40% - 50% more powerful than the A6. The Intel HD 5500 is probably around 40% - 50% more powerful than the Radeon HD 6520G as well. What FPS will you get? I don't know since I do not play those games.

Edit:

Not sure what you mean by "Perfect World Online" is that a game or are you simply referring to MMO games published by Perfect World Entertainment? I only play one PWE game and that is Star Trek Online. I tested STO with the Intel HD 4400 (instead of the Radeon HD 8850m) in my laptop and I can play that game @ 1600x900 resolution with a mix of low and medium graphic settings. The Intel HD 5500 is roughly 20% more powerful than the previous generation Intel HD 4400.

Okay, at bit of confusion, it seems Perfect World is a MMO game published by PWE. Googling "Perfect World Online" generally points me to Perfect World Entertainment.

Anywaste, you should get better performance.

Thank you very much for your help. That is what I was wanting to know. I did mean the game perfect world and not the company so you where right.
