Question
Dear Sir,

I am torn between two budget laptops. One Lenovo Z500 uses the  Intel Core i3, 2.5GHz, shared graphics, 4GB RAM

Another HP laptop uses AMD 2nd gen. Dual-core APU A4-4355m , graphic card     AMD Radeon HD 7400G , and 8gb RAM.

Which one is better for music making?

My sincere thanks,

Answer
Hi Kevin;

From overall performance perspective, the HP with the specs you mentioned above is better. But if you don't wanna use it for graphic based applications (since music making is based on CPU not GPU), the Lenovo is also just fine.

The APU A4-4355m is very similar to the Core i3 2.5GHz, except that its clock frequency is limited to 1.9GHz.
