Default which processor suits my needs more ?

choose a proccessor on the assumption that I only will be using it for gaming.
Intel Core i3-3110M

AMD A8-4500M

(please click the links and read the short bio)

I think maybe the AMD CPU would be better because of turbo bost. also i dont need the i3 built in graphics because i will have a better graphics card.

Honestly if your looking to game on a laptop I would not choose either of those 2.
Why you ask, if you plan on doing any type of dailey work on it or other stuff, you would do better with a mobile Athlon/Phenom based laptop or core i5.

The amd looks good, but performance other than mid range gaming on a cpu/gpu integrated chip wont fly too well at all.

Actually, Mike, the i3 is the better CPU, said by TJ. It is better for gaming.

Steve, please do not post multiple threads on the same subject. We already answered you question in the other thread. The i3 is the better laptop all around. More cores and a higher clock doesn't mean the AMD is better. The i3 is more efficient; regardless of what you plan on using it for.
