I'm planning to buy a new laptop pretty soon and i've done some research on the topic. I game a lot but i dont really plan on playing stuff like crysis on full resolution. So what i want is a budget laptop (Below 35000 INR) which can handle my humble gaming needs (I just want to play assasins creed on medium settings). And the little research i did tells me the new sandybridge cores come with intel HD 3000 and delivers the same performance as entry level dedicated GPUs. So right now I've got two options :

1. But a core i3 with a dedicated card like Nvidia GT 525M or GT 610 M
2. Buy a core i5 which comes with intel HD 3000.

I want to know if core i5 with intel HD 3000 is as good as i3 with a dedicated GPU when it comes to gaming. I'm not really concerned about the way things look inside the game as long as i get a playable FPS - which means I'm ready to slide the settings to lowest possible values. I just want to know how much an i5 can score over an i3. I wont be doing HEAVY gaming anyways. And I wont be wanting to try out newer games. I'd be contend with assasins creed and NFS undercover on MEDIUM settings.

Please don't ask me to wait for Ivybridge :thumbup2:
