Friend needs help choosing laptop.

#1AmiciPosted 11/3/2013 5:40:40 PM
Purpose for the laptop is mid-level gaming, as in nba2k14, borderlands, skyrim, bioshock, metrolight, codmw..., then usual office stuff (word, ppt, excel).

laptop 1- 975 USD (92 USD discount if cash)
core i-7 4500u (1.8gHz)
15.6in display
nvidia ge force 740m (2gb)
dvd combo drive
bang and olufsen speakers

laptop 2 - 1230 USD (116 USD discount if cash)
core i-7 3630qm (2.4gHz)
15 in display
Nvidia GeForce 750m (2gb)
blueray player
av sonic master

both have 1tb HDD,8gb RAM. Friend doesn't care much for the BluRay drive, so main points of contention is of course the price, processor, speed. Opinions?

laptop 2 has the better cpu and and gpu

if you're going to play games fairly often on that you can probably get a laptop with a 770m around that price from xoticpc

Why are you choosing between these two? You can get i7-4700MQ and 750M for $1k pretty easily.

Choices are limited because those are the only models within his price range available in our country (Philippines). We don't have much choice if we don't have relatives in the US, or if we don't want to deal with exorbitant shipping costs.

740m is a multimedia card and 750m is the entry level gaming card. Get something a little better because those laptops will be obsolete fast. Take it from someone who bought a laptop with a 560m in it. It's a year and a half old and won't play BF4.
