Solved Buy new Laptop Advice Needed

Specs: Windows 7, 3.2Ghz/2GB
I have come down to 2 options. Both are DELL 15R (N5110) but with different specs. I need the laptop for Internet Browsing, Youtube, HD Movies (1080p on external display) and I rarely (ones every month or two) do some some photo and video editing. I sometimes play games such as Need For Speed, GTA IV, Modern Warfare series etc but not the heavy types such as Crysis.

I have the two options with a major price different.


2nd Gen Core i5 2.4Ghz (3.0Ghz with Turbo boost)
4GB Memory
NVIDIA GT525M 1GB Graphics card

PRICE: $675


2nd Gen Core i7 2.0Ghz (2.9Ghz with turbo boost)
6GB Memory

PRICE: $899

There is a huge price difference so which one do you think I should get?

Waiting for a response.

First of all they are priced exactly as to their quality. You get what you pay for in this situation.

The core i5 might be good enough. It would do most but a few games.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

So you think the i5 will be good enough for me.

The more expensive laptop has the i7 which is a much better CPU, there's 2GB more RAM, & a larger HDD - there's your price difference. Considering what you're going to use it for, you could easily get by with a laptop 1/2 that price.
