well, if i were you i would choose:
HP Pavilion dv9500t

i have a hp pavilion dv9313ea, and im VERY statisfied with it..
+ HP Pavilion dv9500t has a better gfx card, anyway, it's still your choice, but i think the HP Pavilion dv9500t
is better for what you want to do with it.. and im a student myself, and i can play pretty good with this gfx card.

anyway, good luck with choosing :) ( sorry for my english, but im dutch :) )

From what I have read they are both good but the IC2D just has more raw speed and power than the amd.

well, what i heard from friends that AMD is better for gaming, and Intel better, for just normal windows things etc.. so i would choose intel, cause intel isn't bad at all for gaming :)

Used to be the case, but Intel currently is better with its Core 2 Duo architecture.
