I am in need of a good performance laptop for designing/developing websites.
I have just seen this posted on a thread earlier
Is the AMD A8-3510MX - 1.8GHz Quadcore comparable to an intel i7? Would this laptop be suitable for me?
The A8 is really a direct competitor to the i3 and i5 rather than the i7 which is quite a bit more powerful.
Web design is not a particularly intensive task. Unless you also wanted to run several other application whilst you code you should be fine. Given that the laptop you mention has 8Gb of RAM it be more than adequate.
