  • 3rd generation i5 @ 2.60 GHz or 4th generation i5 @ 1.60GHz ??

    Hi,
    I can't decide between two laptops (specs below).
    I think the question boils down to
    3rd generation i5 @ 2.60 GHz or 4th generation i5 @ 1.60GHz ??
    ANY FEEDBACK WELCOME.


    MY MAIN PRIORITY: Business/professional (it's my livelihood); lots of Word, opening/closing docs/revisions, lots of internet screens open at the same time, downloading pdfs (not huge ones though). SECOND PRIORITY: skype (difference in camera qualities here?), occasional Photoshop, occasional Youtubes etc. NO GAMING.

    Also: I don't move the machine around alot. It'll be mostly at home and be used with an external monitor (except when skyping) and external keyboard.

    Finally: With either machine, I would upgrade to SSD and to 8GB.

    I wouldn't get the ASUS K550LD-DB51-CA, as the screen resolution is too low, 1366 x 768. My mobile phone has a better screen than this.

    Definitely got with the SSD option however. It makes a big difference.
