So, I have been searching for a budget laptop for a really long time. I am finally down to two. I know the 6750M graphics card gives better gaming performance than 7660G, and that A10-4600m is a faster processor than A8-3500m. What I don't know is to what extent one is better than the other. Is there a big difference in the processors?. I need something that would be able to run battlefield 3 and possibly buying BF 4 in the near future. Would I be able to run these games smoothly on low/medium? Thank You for the help.

Laptop #1
Toshiba S855D-S5120
AMD Quad-Core A10-4600M
AMD Radeon™ HD 7660G
8GB DDR3 1600MHz memory

Laptop #2
HP Pavilion DV6-6135DX
2.4GHz/1.5GHz AMD Quad-Core A8-3500M
AMD Radeon HD 6750M
6GB DDR3 System Memory

First off, just by looking at the brands I have had better experiences with Toshiba. Then when we go into the processors the A10 has a clear advantage being a Bulldozer.[1] Then the graphics are better for the Toshiba as well. 6 gigs of ram is pretty akward as well. Overall I believe the Toshiba is the better laptop, but it also depends on the price range of the computers, if you can get the Toshiba for the same price, definitely do it.

Huh, r u sure about the 7660G being better compared to 6750M? Can you explain how you came to that conclusion? The price is about the same.

I was wrong, I thought that the 7660 was an updated version of the 6750,[1] but it seems like the 7660 is integrated and the 6750m is dedicated. This makes the whole choice different.
But based on these benchmarks [2]. BF3 will be unplayable even with the better graphics card, so I don't think you will be able to play BF3 in this range.

Since, we have a clear winner in the graphics department. What do you think about the CPU. Is the performance of A8-3500m many times worse than A10-4600? Based on the reviews and youtube videos, both these laptops are capable of running bf3 smoothly on low.
