Thats the A10-4600m vs an i-5 2557M and i7-2670QM.
What's your laptop budget? Ultimately that'll allow for a better comparison.
I own that pavilion, its is a PIECE!!!! The bloatware that they put on SEVERELY limits the speed and unless you do a completely fresh install of windows, which is extremely hard to do without knowing which mobo it has (which i dont).
I would much much rather get the A10 with something like a 7870m then that crappy hp.

I wasn't recommending the laptop... the comparison between the cpu performance was the point; and if that's with a bloated install I wonder how much faster it'd be with a fresh install rolleyes.gif

Thats not with the bloatwear, thats not even without it. Thats the "projected" performance, my father has an A6 and 6670m (I think) and his laptop is actually faster then mine, I dont even want to know what it would be like with an A10

I would go w/ the A10 on a laptop. It will handle HD content better, play games and have more than enough power for web browsing. Sure it won't encode/decode/encrypt files as fast as the Core i7 but unless you're constantly editing videos and time is of the essence it won't matter. You're looking at a mere 20-30 second difference between the two on encoding/character creation on average. So it's not EXTREMELY significant like most would have you believe.

I just downgraded from a Core i7 3820 to a A10-5800K and I don't notice the difference in most situations. The A10 (Desktop) is about the equivalent w/ the Phenom II 965 on performance..slightly faster in some situations.

I know, I pointed towards that fact in my very first post. But we were discussing the A10 within its own section of the market.
