Comparing 2 laptops ( Please help to choose)

Hello guys. It is my first post so i want to say hello to everyone. I want to buy a new laptop and i cannot decide which laptop to buy. I am comparing this 2 laptops.


1. DELL INSPIRON 15 5570, Notebook mit 15.6'' Display, Core™ i7 Prozessor, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, UHD Grafik 620, Schwarz/Silber 789 Euro

Picture 1

2. DELL INSPIRON 17 5770, Notebook mit 17'' Display, Core™ i5 Prozessor, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Radeon 530, Platium/Silber 799 Euro

Picture 2

If u can't open somehow the hyperlinks i attached it to this topic.

So my question is can someone explain me about the differences with the GPUs and CPUs? Which is better Intel UHD 620 or AMD Radeon 530? Which CPU is better?


Thank you very much for you answers.

Clarification Request
Neither are gamers.

So that's out. What is the use? Is this for school or do you intend to travel?

Both will play movies, card games but the 17 inch is usually to sit on a desk. The 15 inch would be your run of the mill school machine.

Given this isn't about gaming, the CPU is fine for all tasks.

Then the 15 inch.

Just for portability alone. Students that get the 17 always complain. Doesn't fit in backpack, heavier, shorter battery times and on and on.

That gets you the i7, so that's nice.

Personal preference

Those two machines are close enough that you probably won't notice much difference in their performance in the tasks you listed. So, you have to decide: Which is more important, portability or screen space?

My preference is for more screen space. I don't carry my laptop around, much. But, for travel, I got a backpack big enough to hold it. The weight doesn't bother me while I'm in line at the TSA.

Sounds like R. Proffitt has more contact with college students who carry theirs around regularly. Portability might end up being a bigger deal, for you.

And, I just checked, and both of those have 1920x1080 displays. So, the same number of pixels. It's just that the pixels are larger on the 17" display. If you have young eyes, then you can probably handle the smaller display just fine.
