Asus Vivobook vs. Lenovo Ideapad S400

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I am trying to decide between two laptops, I have been searching for about a week and have narrowed it down to two laptops.
I can either get the Asus Vivobook 13.3" with an i5 1.8GHz boost to 2.7GHz (full specs can be found at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/VivoBook+13.3%22+Touch-Screen+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive/8937176.p?id=1218954924448&skuId=8937176&st=touch%20screen%20laptop&cp=1&lp=1#tab=overview) or a Lenovo Ideapad S400 wtih an i3 at 1.9GHz (full specs at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/IdeaPad+S400+Touch+14%22+Touch-Screen+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive/1549041.p;jsessionid=916952A6AA86DA1FE1067D348D956268.bbolsp-app01-139?id=1219054922034&skuId=1549041&st=lenovo%20touch%20screen&cp=1&lp=5 ).
So the primary difference is the processor and screen size, the Vivobook is 50 dollars more than the Lenovo and has a faster processor but the Lenovo has a bigger screen and costs less money. I am primarily going to be using this laptop at school to update my website and play a few games like WoW or Minecraft, my question is, will the i5 make that big of difference in gaming performance compared to the i3. I don't need the performance for anything other than a few minor games that I will be doing. What would any of you recommend?

Also I know these laptops aren't specifically for gaming in any means, and that is not the primary use for them at all. I am just suggesting that for 50 bucks more it might be worth it for something that can do moderate gaming (such as Minecraft), either way I will get one of these. I have a high end gaming desktop and don't need a gaming laptop, I am simply suggesting that it would be nice.
