I've been looking for a new laptop and now I need some advice.
I've found a HP with an AMD A8-4555M (1.6-2.4) (4*core) processor, with a 2. class AMD Radeon HD 8850M
I know that the graphics card is quite good, but I'm not so sure about the processor. I've read about the processor but it's not entirely clear if it's good or not.
What I want to know is, is this processor good for gamers? (can it run BF.3 skyrim and Assassins C. III on medium or high settings?) (it would be a shame for the graph.card)
The A8 is okay. An A10 would be better, and an Intel i5 or i7 would be even better. A8 is a budget processor and may bottleneck your system if the game you play is demanding on the CPU (games like Skyrim I believe are fairly CPU heavy).
