Default Which one??

I'm entering college next year for Interactive media design and production and I am looking for a new laptop. I'm on a budget and i have narrowed it down to this

Sony Vaio 15.5" E Series

2nd gen Intel® Core™ i3-2370M processor (2.40GHz)
Microsoft Windows® 7 Home Premium
AMD Radeon™ HD 7650M (1GB) dedicated graphics
750GB (5400rpm) hard drive
6GB (4GB x1 + 2GB x1) DDR3-



ASUS K53 Series X53SV-MH71 Notebook
Intel Core i7 2670QM(2.20GHz) 15.6"
8GB Memory DDR3 1066
640GB HDD 5400rpm
DVD Super Multi
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M


I'm under a budget so if you do have any recommendations please make it under 699.99

Default Re: Which one??

I'd go with the second one. It has a better CPU and more RAM for only $10 more.

FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0

2nd all the way.
Pity the living, not the dead. We never know who else we must let go.
