    option 2

    they're both basically the same performance wise(9700m isn't that much faster than a 9600m FYI) but option 2 is cheaper

    ehm yes, the gfx card isnt that much of an improvement, but the cpu and the ram ist. if you have the money i'd go for the first one, but i'd never buy a laptop for that kind of mony. they stop getting mobile at some point, making the whole point of it being a laptop idiocy. get a desktop computer for a better price with waaay better performance and a cheap trip for your odd hour where you actually need a small, handy and mobile solution!

    Option 2. Most laptops are mainly for school work and web surfing, and Photoshop (basically) They aren't hardcore gaming.

    for that amount of cash I'd buy a mac, but if you don't want one I'd go for option 2

    Remember, $3100 Singapore Dollars only equals about $2000 US dollars.
