The A8 for me would be the clear choice over the i5, it might be clocked a little bit lower, but has 4 cores for applications which wil substantially increase performance.

IMO go with the AMD based latop, the only advantage with the intel based machine is marginally faster speed in less core demanding tasks like surfing the web, while the APU provides you with 4 cores and a...
