The laptops purposes are uni work, virtualization and some light gaming (COD4 and potentially Eve Online).

I can't decide if I should get one with a graphics card to benefit from Crossfire or not? Which one would you pick and why?

The A8 will prove to be more powerful than the rest simply on account that it's got the full quad core chip and it has a more powerful iGPU. For the price, that's a great deal. smile.gif
