They are all about on par with each other, Not much between them at all, I'd opt for i3 one personally as HP laptops used to have a problem of overheating and the i3 will run cooler than the AMD.

Really appreciate that Thank you

The Amd slightly edges it.

That comparison site really is rubbish. I use notebookcheck.net and use their massive cpu or gpu tables which are made up of actual benchmarks from review etc, not just comparing intel specs against amd specs which doesn't really tell you much. notebookcheck actually puts the i3 quite a bit ahead no. 225 vs no. 293

It just lists mobile processors and graphics in order, you can select multiple ones to compare, or click on an individual one to find out more info, which usually includes how it has performed in different reviews.

Brilliant Thank you.

Any thoughts on the 4 laptops I posted on which would be the best for my daughter?

How old is she? Could be your 50 year old daughter! :p. The choice is between the i3 ones and the A6 ones, as state the cpus are very similar, but the AMD ones graphics wise have the R5 in which is equivalent to the Intel HD Graphics 4200, the i3 one has Intel HD Graphics 4400 in. Go with this one

Or try this deal hotukdeals.com/dea…178
Which is the ones I told you not to get for less than £300. To be honest £350 is quite a lot to spend on a laptop, yeah it has a 1TB hard drive, but would she ever use that much space? Plus it has 8GB of ram, but that's dead cheap really and probably won't all get utilised. For not much more than £350 you can get a much much better laptop than the ones you posted. Or search on here for 'laptop' and pick one for around £150-250.

There was or is a deal for an absolutely amazing Dell laptop for £440, yeah that's £90 more than the ones you posted, but my point is for £90 less than the ones you posted (so £260) you could get a laptop which would be un-noticeably different performance wise to the £350 ones you posted.
