    Hi,
    Although I know that Intel Core i5 520M is new processor that's the main reason of my dilemma. I would like to ask for advice please, if laptop was to be used for normal daily work and gaming (no video/audio editing or some other similar "heavy" task), which one is better for that in your opinion:

    Code:
    HP Pavilion dv7-3180es
    Intel Core i5 i5-520M
    4 GB DDR3
    SATA 640 GB (5400 rpm)
    NVIDIA GeForce G 230M 1 GB DDR3
    Code:
    HP Pavilion dv7-2240es
    Intel Core 2 Duo P8700
    4 GB DDR3
    SATA 640 GB (7200)
    ATI Radeon HD 4650 1 GB DDR3
    Thanks in advance.

    If the prices are about the same, I'd choose the one with the i5. But if it's more expensive, then the other one will do just fine for your requirements.
