3rd Gen Intel i7 processor with 2.3 GHz and 6MB Cache (honestly don't know what the fuck this means so an explanation would be nice)
8GB System Memory
1TB 5400rpm HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Graphics with 2GB GDDR5 memory
or a Macbook with:
2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5
8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm (the 1TB on the hp is a special deal, not that big of a deal)
Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 384MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory
So basically I understand the basics but the graphics and ram are a bigger deal to me right now and the Macbook Pro is cheaper by like $100.
If you were going to shell out about $1,100 what would you get basically?
