I think most would agree that we need more information. For example, what are you planning on doing with the laptop/desktop? Also, do you want a large screen, or a small screen...does it have to be very light or can it be heavier as you won't move it much...is battery life important or more important to you than overall performance????

I think the i5 is a more powerful processor -- even more powerful is the i7 (all other things being equal).

HP G62 144DX. Nothing comes close, $599, got it at best buy. Only problem, it was out for a month then yanked from shelves "everywhere". I fear they realize it's worth far more money than they're charging, and they're going to re-release it under another name for $700+.

If you can find one, grab it!

i330m 2.13Ghz X2 with HyperThreading (4 logical cores)
4GB DDR3 1333 Ram
500GB 7,200 RPM HDD!!!
HD Display, 720
Intel HD Display
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Well here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...150156&lang=en

And much more...


I own one, if you would like a video or some detail just ask me, I'm on it now, but I can boot up one of my other systems and give you a preview "they" won't give.
It's nice, it can actually game, no joke! Some games throw a fit tho, otherwise, the i3 330m is superb, the i5 is certainly not necessary, no way, hell no.

The battery life is incredible, the Cpu is 32nm!! I dunno what they did, but the screen is extra special, I leave it on the second highest brightness setting at all times, even on battery, and it's sick bright, outside on campus, in sunlight, "perfect", no issues. Also, I can watch two full movies, at this brightness, on battery, with 18% batt life left, well that's what it was last time, watched 2012 and Avatar...

Peace

wow those are long movies too! pretty good battery life! but he wants to do autocad so he would need a little more oomph! I dont see the i3 cutting it but you say that you can do gaming, like what games? as for me the best laptop I used and plenty powerful is the ASUS K60 IN
CPU Pentium Intel Dual-Core T4300 2.16 GHz
RAM 4 GB

500gb HD
MONITOR 16" max res. 1366x768
VIDEO CARD NVIDIA GE FORCE G102M "512MB dedicated" memory
WEB CAM Integrated + microphone
WINDOWS 7 64 BIT HOME PREMIUM
DVD RW DL.
4 USB

picked it up at futureshop for $599! funny thing is they yanked that one off the shelves too!!

It scored 13 seconds in SuperPI @ 1Million decimals, 'nough said, that's faster than "all" previous Intel quad core cpu's!

The 3D power comes from the Cpu, games don't look great, obviously, but it has the power, and hyper-threading for well threaded applications, such as those he will be using.

Sacrifices with the 144DX are these, no real gaming Gpu, the Intel is good, but not designed for gaming, but it will game. Also, no blu-ray, there is a model identical which has it, but it's $100 more. IMO, no way, this can be upgraded down the road, but if willing to pay that for such a thing, well there's that option. Again these are very hard to find, sadly.

Peace

If you want a desktop replacement type of laptop, big FHD (1920 x 1080) screen, good nvidia discrete graphics (1 GB video ram), i7 quad core CPU power (8 logical cores) for under $1,000. Check out the HP DV8 from HP Direct. There is a $300 off coupon plus a $200 instant rebate going right now that brings these down to about $950 including 18.4 inch awesome FHD screen, 500 GB 7200 rpm drive, 4 GB DDR3 1333 MHz ram, DVD RW optical drive. Wireless GN. Pretty awesome power for the money.

Drawbacks are they are big, on the heavy side and have very poor battery life. But they are powerful and awesome for entertainment, including gaming.
