    Looking for a new laptop


    Hello!
    I am buying a new laptop which I will use to watch videos, search the internet and play some games (Guild Wars (maybe Guild Wars 2), GTA San Andreas) Which one of these 2 do you think is better?
    Acer E1-571G-73634G50Mnks

    15,6" Display (1366x768)
    Intel Core i7-3632QM 2.2GHz
    RAM 4GB (I might buy 4GB more if I need)
    500GB HDD
    GeForce 710M 1GB
    Price: 549€ (~750$)
    Lenovo G505s (I'm not sure about the specs or model but I sent email to the webstore that sells it to tell me the specs)

    15,6" Display (1366x768)
    AMD A8-4500M 1.9GHz
    8GB RAM
    500GB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 8570M 2GB GDDR3

    The Core i7 all the way. The AMD one is lower end cpu wise. As far as the hard drive and ram, you can easily upgrade both down the road when needed.
