Between these two?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a college laptop at a good price. I currently have a netbook, and I'm loving that it's portable, light, cheap, and has great battery life. I'm looking for similar qualities in a larger laptop.

Here's two that I'm looking at:


HP

AMD Dual Core 2.4GHz
4GB
6 cell
Radeon 4250
14.5inch
($400)

-And-

Gateway
Intel i3 2.4GHz
4GB
6 cell
Graphics: "Intel HD"? I'm guessing onboard...
15.6inch
($500)

Main questions:

*How easy will it be to replace these HDs with an SSD? Will I have to rip the thing apart or is there an easy to access compartment?

*Is the first one a better deal since it's $100 cheaper and has better graphics?

*What can I run with a Radeon 4250? Photoshop? TF2? Deadspace? etc

*Which will have better battery life?

Thanks
