Your AMD is for fans and those on a tight budget. Sadly, with HP's failure to fix my laptop at 3 months old and 6 months later no fixed laptop I can't write nice about HP. I'd accept this if you think the warranty may not be honored.
I'm considering purchasing a new computer for my work. I use it all day for emails, web and Photoshop. Photoshop takes up a lot of resources when I do automated tasks so I need it to be fast but it will NOT be used for gaming.
Which of these specs are better? What's the difference between the i5 & the AMD?
