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? --- Pain is temporary; glory is forever. Your friendly neighborhood gaming surgeon.

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 --- bust rb

Why are you choosing between these two? You can get i7-4700MQ and 750M for $1k pretty easily. --- "...Ashley takes on Lord Blazer alone in a white cape with flowing rockstar hair while playing his impossibly cool sword as a guitar..." - LBoksha
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. --- Pain is temporary; glory is forever.

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. --- Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment.
