Yes, what I said was that on the CPU side of things, the Intel will go a lot longer and still be considered "fast" or "usable". It will have more "speed longevity" so to speak. On the GPU side of things, the APU's graphics absolutely hammer 4000 into the dirt, that's for sure. But HD4000 isn't bad either for light duty stuff like TF2. smile.gif

Oh for sure. My cousin has a HD1000 on his G530 and he can play TF2, CS:S, CS:GO and LoL without issue on his 1600 x 900 Hanns.G. Granted it's not ideal and he can't play games like BF3, L4D2, ect it would work. I'd still go for an A8 + Hybrid graphics over an i5 w/ a HD4000 anyday tongue.gif

I just built a A8-5600K rig for a friend of mine and the APU absolutely destroys my cousins G530 int. graphics and it cost about the same amount to build. I'm convinced that the A8-5600K could play L4D2 w/ higher settings @ 1920 x 1080 no problem.

I would go for the one with the i5 the cpu is better, and the HD 4000 is not that bad, its ok.

I would take the G6 intel notebook.

1) 15.6 vs 17.3 inch will be much easier to tote around.
2) The intel notebook will pound the AMD processor into the ground x86 computing wise
3) The HD4000 will be more than enough to support you for quite some time since you don't game.
4) The price of the intel is cheaper
