    Hello TPU, well I've recently started traveling a lot and I'm looking for gaming on the go, the thing is I'm a cheap bastard so no uber gaming laptop for me, I'm planing on spending 700$ or less(less being better), so I've found two prospecs both are exactly the same laptop gateways with 4 gigs, 500gb HDD, Wireless N same 1.3 mp camera now the difference is one has a 2.4ghz core i3 and the other has a AMD x3 n830 2.1ghz both with a HD5650 the intel laptop is about 120$ more expensive, I don't care about battery life, all I want is moderate performance in mass effect and dragon age, and some other less demanding games, how much of a difference will the amd laptop's performance drag compared to the i3 and is it worth the price premium for some casual trip gaming.

    bump!!! seriously lately to get help on TPU is getting hard, maybe I should start talking of how I'll refuse to upgrade or buy from the interwebs:laugh:

    EDIT: done deal got 25$ off plus free shipping im getting the gateway with the n830 not bad for 525$, I think.
