    If the Samsung is the A8-3510MX it will be slightly better CPU performance than the Intel Pentium 2127U. However battery life is probably better on the Intel with lower TDP. Both of these are not a good choice as a gaming laptop if thats the intent unless playing flash games on facebook or something requiring not much for GPU processing power of the APUs.


    What is the application, just web surfing or games or both, or other and if other list other use such as graphic design or programmer or whatever it is?  Think about the most complex application you would have for it and is it processing intense or graphically intense or both as well.

      The Series 3 (NP305V5A) may have a luxurious exterior, but its parts are lackluster. If Web browsing and day-to-day tasks, with some gaming on the side, are what you have in mind then you might go for this.
