My main concern was the first one listed. It did not list the amount of ports. My interest in the second is also largely due to its processor and graphics chip. I do have some concerns over the price and I am likely to buy the 2 year replacement warranty. Downside being it is an extra 180 dollars. I am still looking around. I just want to avoid Windows 8 at all costs.

Looking at a Dell Vostro 3560
3rd Gen Intel® Core™ i5-3210M Processor (2.50GHz, with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.10GHz)

Windows 7 Professional with XP Mode

15.6 Inch LED Screen (720p)

500 GB HD

AMD Radeon™ HD 7670M 1GB

6 GB of RAM

A few features of this laptop

It would cost me 769.00 dollars

Would you say its worth it?

Would this one be a better deal?

The Dell is good but does cost more so I would choose the ASUS who BTW make excellent products, before you make your final decision here are a couple more less expensive options http://www.tigerdire...2227&CatId=4937 and http://www.tigerdire...3329&CatId=4937

If I was going to decided between those two HP laptops which one would you guys reccomend?

Intel Core i5-2520M Vs AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M

Is there a significant difference? The pro book also seems to have a newer graphics card. It also has a bigger hard drive.

The cpu issue is not important. I myself would go for the bigger hd and better graphics especially if you play games or watch a lot of videos.

The AMD is also listed as faster 2.70 vs 2.50 GHz. I know that can be different varying on some stuff though. The pro book does seem to have better stuff with the graphics card and HD.

I am partial to AMD but the other computers that belong to family members all have Intel.

Another plus for the Probook is the 15.6" display as opposed to the Elitebooks 14" display.
