Windows 7: [Laptop] Samsung 305V5A-T01 vs. HP ProBook 4530s

[Laptop] Samsung 305V5A-T01 vs. HP ProBook 4530s


I'm looking to buy a new laptop very soon and so far I narrowed my choice to these two laptops:

1) Samsung 305V5A-T01

2) HP ProBook 4530s

Their price is pretty close (Samsung is slightly cheaper).

I still can't decide between them so I'm looking for educated (or at least intelligent) advise.

I made a small comparison that sums up their most notable specs:

What I like the most about those two is that they are both NOT glossy which I learned the hard way is it sucks, big time (unless you like working in darkness or something).

In any case, I'll be using the laptop for Gaming, Encoding and Programming (through Virtual Machines) but in no particular order.

Anyways, I would appreciate the advice in this matter.

PS: From what I've read is that the AMD A8 would offer much better performance (compared to the i5 2450) in gaming due to CF, can anyone confirm or deny that?
