Hi guys! I am looking at these 2 computers:

http://www.elgreen.se/sv/rekonditionerade-asus/asus-r513cl-sx373h.html#addedtocart

http://www.elgreen.se/sv/rekonditionerade-asus/asus-pris-3000-3999/asus-x550lb-xo088h-1.html

I'm not sure which to get. One has a better processor but worse graphics card and the other one is vice.versa. I will not be playing a lot of games on them (mabey Minecraft and Need For Speed and if possible COD) but rather using them for school. Which one is better?

Btw: I live in Sweden so i can't shop on amazon.com or any other American webiste. Thx in advance.

Why is this one better? Is it because of the graphics card which is better or the newer intel i5? Or something completely different?

The X55 has a better cpu, more ram and a better graphics card. Go with this one.
The R513 has more L2+L3 cache. Compared to the reasoning for the X55 this is not convincing.

The CPU of the R513 looks better with the higher total speeds, but it loses out in architecture. The i5 is haswell which is a generation newer than the i7, which is ivy bridge. The difference in higher total speed is made up for using the speed more intilligently in the i5.

I chose it because of the gpu as you wanted to game. Plus the cpu is more than enough for normal school things.
