Hi guys! Just wondering which of these two I should choose, or if there are any better choices for the same price!

They will be used for gaming and university studies.

My budget is 700 and this is TAXES and SHIPPING included!

Remember I live in Canada, I can't buy from the US because costs would go up like crazy.

 

Thanks a lot!

Greg

I would go for the lenovo, I have a y560p and besides the battery going out last month it's been a great work horse for all of highschool.

If I remember correctly, the gou in the Lenovo (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834310645) scores higher than the dell.

The Dell has much faster processor then the Lenovo and the GPU also is more powerful then the APU's 7660G.
