    But that is neither here nor there. He needs some AV program.

    This would have been a good one. I got that during the black Friday week ( but a couple of days before black Friday) for $400. It is a nice system. I am now going to add a SSD to the HDD (in the CD/DVD bay) and then it will be really fast.

    That is actually correct. But it should not be confused with a desktop i5 which is a lot faster.

    Just that you have to compare apples with apples. But if I remember right, you are concerned about ganming performance and that is much more a matter of the graphics.

    My Graphics have 4GB to them. Remember, I have an AMD A8 Elite Quad Core. So, is there any way to make my laptop really fast? Like in minecraft for example. I think it used 1 core. But is there anything that will let it use my 4 cores?

    You are bringing up peanuts.

    I have the same graphics you have, you were looking for improvements in Minecraft (a game I play). On that level, our machines are identical.
