If so I have little issue with the i7, heat and other issues there. If this is a laptop, we want to stick with the i5 today. It is that simple.
I am looking for a laptop. Mostly i will be needing it for basic stuff like checking email, using microsoft office etc. Occasionally i will also be doing CAD. My budget is around $1000. Also i would be taking this machine to college.
I have shortlisted the following two options:
1. hp envy 14 with core i5 460m 6 gb ram and ATI 5650 GPU.
2. hp dv6 - 3052nr with core i7 720qm 6 gb ddr3 ram and ati 5650 gpu.
I am just inclined towards envy because it will supposedly be having a better built quality and since i dont live in usa, i want to stay out of trouble of claiming warranty (although hp has warranty support in my country, but global warranty do have limitations).
one more thing, should I opt for i7 or more ram??
