I started uni couple of days ago and am looking to upgrade my current laptop. The current specs follow
i3 core processor 2.5 GHz
intergrated graphics card
I am finding that my current laptop is getting quite slow even after clearing the junk from the hard drive (defragging etc). I'm looking to use the laptop for gaming and schoolwork. running programs such as eclipse and Photoshop.
Therefore I have a couple of questions about the new laptop I'm looking at:
1. Would an i5 1.8 GHz be more powerful and kick out more performance than my current i3 2.5GHz and if so how much more powerful is it?
2. Would it be better to get an i5 or i7 for my medium to low level games such as counter strike and dota2.
3. Can you suggest any laptops?
Thanks for your time and help guys.
