Cpu and Gpu for Dota 2.

1). AMD APU A6-4400m and Radeon HD 7600 (I think this is a 7610m)

2). Intel- i3-2328m and intel hd 3000

3). Intel i3-3110m and intel hd graphics.

Ive spent like 2 hours researching the graphic cards. I think the radeon 7600 hd is the best gpu while the 3110m is the best cpu of the 3.

I know the 3 choices arent suitable for dota 2, but im sure they all pass the minimum requirement.
My original choice is a i3-3110m and intel hd 4000, but assuming i wont able to get that. The 3 choices above are my backup.

P.S. my main reason im getting a laptop is for school, i just like dota 2.

Would go AMD APU, the graphic part is stronger that on the intel side.
But if you want a laptop for school, you might want to look at battery life before the rest unless you have access to power outlet.

I've actually done my own research and that A6-4400M APU only has a HD7500 series GPU (HD7520G according to the specs on the AMD website).

If you can wait until late March, you might want to wait a bit for the AMD Richland APUs. They are a minor upgrade (Kaveri later this year is the real upgrade), but the release should coincide with some promotions from manufacturers and/or at least some downward price pressure on older AMD Trinity stock.

That is, if you want to go AMD. IMO, the APU is a better model for cheaper laptops than Intel CPUs (acceptable performance all across, including for games like DotA 2, while Intel cripples its own lower end CPU's integrated graphics), but it depends on what laptop manufacturers do with the chip.

Thanks guys I think I'll wait just as Irenicus said. Also just curious would DotA 2 run on an AMD Radeon HD 7300 Dedicated?
