i think "AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M (3.0GHz/2.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache) dual core and 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm) with 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7670M Graphics $540
I wouldnt mind upgrading to AMD Quad-Core(I DONT KNOW IF IT HAS HYPERTHREADING) A8-4500M (3.0GHz/2.1GHz, 4MB L2 Cache) for a total of $600" is much better. I am always with AMD. i think your should go with AMD
How is that much better? Prove it. He's not upgrading to a quad and the dual core does NOT have HT.
