Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could help me choose which of the two laptops posted below is better for gaming - they're the same price but have different components (Intel vs. AMD and Nvidia vs. Radeon). Overall, I just can't tell which is better really! It's only for games like World of Warcraft, Half Life 2 etc, not hardcore modern games!

Any help or suggestions are welcome :)

None of them because both aren't for gaming.
But out of the 2, I'll go with the HP because it has a faster CPU.
The Asus has a Intel, but it's U model and those run at a slowest speed to have a low TDP which looks nice on paper as how much energy it saves. I've tried laptops with a U CPU and it ran like molasses.

On that site, this is the one with the best mobile GPU

It should be capable of playing BF4 at 45FPS on medium

Oh no ... not what I wanted to hear :( haha that's a pretty sweet laptop you've suggested - but wayyyy out of my budget! These two are the most expensive ones I can afford really (around £580). Do they really suck that badly? There's one left in the shop of that HP and I was going to go get it tomorrow, but now I'm considering not doing so!

Yeah I was going to build my own desktop, but then got scared because I've never built one before, and I like the fact I can take a laptop pretty much anywhere I go :) with much more ease than a desktop atleast! That laptop you have suggested sounds good, and I wouldn't mind paying that bit more if it'll make a reasonable difference in performance.
