An i5 and i7 will be even faster (especially newer ones)
Except in graphics, where the A6 clobbers the Intel HD 4000. If you want to play games, this is a better choice for a budget 17-inch laptop. You get a full fledged Radeon HD GPU that is on-die inside the CPU.
I have this laptop, bought it for $349 right before BF from Staples. It's okay. Only bought it for a dev project that required an AMD CPU though. It's actually my first 17-inch laptop ever.
And, for the most part, it is currently functioning as a doorstop. I really should get it on fleabay... sigh.
