What is CPU speed going to do for you on a laptop? all you really need is a decent CPU and a SSD. Sure a Faster CPU will extract a RAR sligtly faster, but what real world thing is he gonna do that requires more of it? I doubt he plans to fold on a laptop. For a A6 laptop though your gonna want new ram in it ASAP. Get the fastest DDR3 you can get your hands on for it, will improve gaming performance.
I have a T9600 and with a SSD it feels just as fast as my desktop. Things like browsing the web has no benefit from a faster CPU.
The HD4000 is a laggy mess, frame drops
Can't turn settings up high enough
The A6 or A8 or 10 if you can would game circles around a HD4000 in terms of smoothness.
Benchmarks are still benchmarks, not real world apps
Get the APU
Balanced system is the way to go
Though sometime this year second gen trinity APU's will be coming with HSA improvements, would be worth saving up for if you can wait. May go for one myself seeing that I have no need for more CPU performance then what my T9600 already gives, and getting rid of this gtx260m for something that doesnt run so hot with poor battery life may be worth it.Edited by DzillaXx - 1/4/13 at 10:46pm
