I'm looking for a new laptop. It will mainly be used for work (MS Office) and browsing the net. Maybe some low level gaming.
Happy with Win7 at the moment, may upgrade to Win8 in the future.

My budget is ~ £350.

I've seen the following 2 laptops:


These 2 have similar specs except with different processors.

What do you guys think? Any recommendations.

Thanks in advance.

The i3 is a faster processor but the APU (the onboard graphics) in the AMD processor will probably be superior to that of the Intel processor, the Intel CPU will probably also be a bit more efficient.

I guess I'd say the one with the i3 in it. I don't think you'll be doing much gaming on it though.
