I am skeptical about HP as its infamous for heating issues and poor after sales customer services (at least in Mumbai, India). Dell on the other hand offers awesome customer service which is well known. I am confused so kindly help me out. Thank You.
Well, technically, I would recommend you find a CPU that has an i5 rather i3.
AMD A8-4500m + 7670m is an APU Crossfire which it is quite powerful for a low budget gaming laptop.
Well, since both of the laptop has the same price, then I guess you should get Dell because of the quality.
Well, it's all up to you.
HP's laptop has a great specs and probably outperform than Dell's laptop but sadly the quality and heating issues steps in.
Well, it appears that AMD A8 has better performance than i3.
