So Laptop 1 has an Intel Core i3-3110M, 4GB RAM, and a GeForce GT 640M LE 2GB GPU
Laptop 2 has a quad core A8-A4500M, 8GB RAM, and a Radeon HD 8750M 2GB GPU
They are both bleep but a friend in Eastern Europe is purchasing them so it's probably all they have available.
Which would you choose assuming they are the same price?

Personally the second I've always been a amd fan, but I don't see either as being a bad choice with the info provided.

I'd say the second is superior in all aspects I see. It may come down to price.
