The RAM is extremely easy to replace. You can buy 8GB for a lot less than $100.

Of course you can. You just remove the bottom panel and the RAM slots are right there. I've upgraded multiple laptops' RAM.

I would still get the 2nd for that difference.

Twice the RAM, disc space, and probably CPU cores too.


There are no mobile i7 quad cores running at 3.2GHz. That is definitely a dual core i7.


You were saying?

Of course there are. Not a stock, but with the turbo boost, which is the speed that the specs of the laptop is using.

The laptop with the i7 is a much better value for just $100 more than the i5, even if the video card is slightly less powerful, the extra RAM and disc space would cost close to that, and on top of it you get a much better processor that will serve you for everything, not just games like the video card would.

When manufacturers talk about turbo speeds they specify that it's a turbo speed. Also when a CPU turbos that much from stock it's probably only running on one active core. So yeah there are no mobile quad cores running at 3.2GHz.
