Hi everyone... I have some questions about laptops...i need it for light gaming and school and everyday multimedia. I cannot choose between i3 and pentium quad. On the other hand i like a4/6/8 but i heard that amd has overheating issues. For graphics i look at r4/5 or gt810/920m. I like ssd but if i have 2.5 inch bay i would upgrade it later. Hdd capacity is not so important (500<). I prefer lenovo 300 premium housing more than hp and lenovo 100 plastic housing. Is that worth extra money? Thanks in advance

If you're looking towards light gaming and schoolwork, I think it would be best to buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-E5-575G-53VG-15-6-Inch-Windows/dp/B01DT4A2R4

940MX will be sufficient for light gaming, and the i5 6200U, although weak, will be sufficient for most processes including gaming. You could always buy an external HDD and store your school stuff on there, to save on the relatively low internal space that the laptop has. Putting all of the few games that you'll be playing on the SSD will be good, and having an external HDD for school work might be more convenient then you think.
