Thinking about switching laptops...
New one: core i3-330m with ATI radeon 5145 HD
Old one : AMD turion ii ultra dual core m660 @ 2.7 ghz with ATI radeon 4530 HD
Thoughts? Should I switch? I'm not sure which processor is better... 5145 is the better gpu.

I'm inactive on this, dedicating most of my time to osu!
nop cause architecture matters also, and the amd one is kinda behind on that...
just to know hd 5145 will be allot slower than hd 4530
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64 sp1, MoBo: Asus P5QD Turbo, CPU: Q6600 @ 3,0Ghz, RAM: Trancend 2x2gb 6-6-6-18 800 MHz, GPU: HD 4850 1gb.

^In response, Yeaahhh, definitely, I already use this laptop with the AMD, just to play FFX - and it runs fullspeed 90% of the time.
Mmmm, I have thought about switching for a desktop, and it's a very very very enticing option - for the same price I can get a 1tb hardrive, i5 processor, 1gb nvidia card. The preference for a laptop stems from the fact that I'm going to University, and a powerful, but portable pc is preferred.
And yeah, I did a lot more research on the i3 - it's definitely the faster processor
On top of that, the 5145 IS faster, notebookcheck comparison shows that it's not a huge improvement - but it's certainly enough.
Thanks for your input guys, tomorrow I'm now definitely going to go and switch out my laptop.
