I've recently been asked the very question in the title, and I wasn't sure what to answer, so I thought I'd ask you guys.
I should also mention that it came from a guy looking to buy a laptop for about 600 to 650 dollars.
The choice is between:
1) 15.6 inch Lenovo Ideapad G5070, core i3-4030U at 1.90GHz, 4GB of RAM, 1TB storage, and an AMD Radeon R5 M230 2GB (about $540)
2) 15.6 inch Asus X552CL-SX033D, Core i5-3337U at 1.80GHz, 4GB of RAM, 500GB, nVidia GeForce 710M 1GB (about $600)
Other suggestions are also welcome.
He wants to play games (WoW, LOL and such) and mostly consume media.
