New here. I have 2 laptops. Both kinda basic. Which is better?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Let me start off by saying that I am ALMOST a complete noob when it comes to computers. I dont quite understand the clock speed vs chip card and which is best vs etc.

I got this old computer a while ago in a trade for my galaxy tab. I installed windows 10 this week and feel like i got a fresh start.
I also bought a laptop for black firday from dell. Its new technology vs old. But how do i know that the newer one is better? The new laptop FEELS "cheaper".

Which one of these can handle games better?

The dell has faster cpu

asus has less vram but faster vram

asus might be better at gaming depending on the game but the dell is probably the better all around for gamer

 

Edit: I didn't see the GS

 

Go with the Dell its a bit faster and has more cores

Is an 820m really slower than a 9800m?? I'd say the Dell for sure...

what is vram? is that the 512ram for the graphics card that you are reffering to?
Can I upgrade this to a, say 1GB?

I'd go with the Dell, but I dunno if I'd be happy gaming on it.

The 820m is faster than the 9800m. Overall, the Inspiron is the better machine.

Go with the Dell Inspiron. Much better GPU and CPU is way better. I suggest 2 upgrades, new SSD and get 8GB memory. I'm still on my system that's an i5-560m and 420m, still 4GB. Just getting 8GB now also but the SSD makes it lightening fast.
