Gateway. Intel IGP is terrible for gaming while 5650 is a pretty good mobile gaming card.

please avoid HP. Both of mine ended their lives after warranty, bad motherboards. Both were part of recalls, that were not publicized, only eligible if motherboard died in warranty repair period.

Both started out with disc drives going bad, but not the drive itself, the controller, then one the lan, the other the graphics, then ones touch buttons/sound, and the other i got pissed and threw. the end.

gateway.

you're not gonna really benefit from the extra ~450MHz of the i5 in your tasks. a dedicated graphics card is always nice AND $50 cheaper.. can't go wrong.

and take care of your isht.
