i5 + a better gpu, at least r7 240 or 250x

wait, u mean notebook, 635m is better

I believe this is a preconfigured laptop spec, so OP can't necessarily pick and choose GPU's on a whim. In either case, the i5 is a superior CPU for most if not all tasks.

Also game-debate is not entirely to be trusted, they base their performance on strange numbers which don't necessarily make a GPU better than another.
