i have the hp with the a10 and it runs titanfall pretty well, as for internet goes, it really depends on the type of service you have....I have used this at my home it runs fairly good and quiet....but if I go say to my friends who have a better internet connection than I do...it does much better....so that's my opinion. Oh and I feel it is better than the i3, and i5.
A10 is way better since in terms of performance, only thing really count is graphics. Performance wise, these are as fast as most desktops other than gamers.
Buy a used laptop that are like 6mo with very good user reviews. 10 years from now, laptop will probably have 64gb mram and 1tb flash for today's value of $300
The i5 should do you just fine since you don't do any gaming I have the A10-5745 and I do some gaming and it works fine.
Im tormenting myself!. I just bought or ordered I should say the Dell Inspiron that comes with AMD Quad-Core A10-5745M Processor. But I see the intell i5 and the i7 proc Dell - Inspiron 17.3" Laptop - AMD A10-Series - 8GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive - Silver essors that are also available. I do NO gaming. I want most a quiet machine and FAST on the internet basically thats it and I also take and load pictures and videos but not a lot. Im not a geek just a casual user. Thanks! I got the 17 inch svreen model on the Dell because I like a movie now and again. The actual computer is the one above I copied and pasted. Should I go for the i 5 or 7 processor? I dont care about the money I just want this to last me for the next 10 years hopefully and stay current.
