I'm looking at two. 1. (AMD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834315445 and 2. (Intel) https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-NVIDIA-Windows-E5-575G-53VG/dp/B01DT4A2R4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1475871538&sr=1-1&refinements=p_n_operating_system_browse-bin%3A12035945011|12566246011|5945862011|5945861011|2232492011|2232493011|2232495011|2232494011|5945864011|2232496011|562222011

Both have 1080p screens, SSD, 6 cell batteries, and 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and dedicated GPUs. My hang up is that the AMD dedicated GPU appears to be very bad based on a quick look at benchmarks on notebook check. Also, the AMD option doesn't have a back-lit keyboard. Does anyone have experience on the Bristol Ridge APUs?

I'd take the Amazon deal. Not only the 6200U is more efficient than the A12-9700P, the 940MX will do better than the R8 in almost every environment, game, you name it.
