A better phone or a better laptop?

12SHARESFacebookTwitter A better phone or a better laptop? I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and I really want a new phone, but I also really want a new laptop. I can only afford to choose one of those two options that I have and it’s bloody difficult. This is the laptop I’m thinking of getting: Processor – Intel Core i5 3230M – 2.4 GHz RAM – 8GB Hard Drive – 1 TB Operating System – Windows 8 (64-Bit) Optical Drive – DVD Super Multi Graphics – NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M Graphics Memory – 2 GB Cost: £539.86 It would be quite the upgrade from my current laptop model: AMD A4-4355M processor Windows 8 Memory: 4 GB Hard drive: 500 GB AMD HD 6520G Graphics Memory – 2 GB £430.00 For the record, the AMD A4-4355M processor is a POS. I bought this laptop a year and a half ago and from the very start it wouldn’t really run certain programs that required too much CPU usage. It seems to not fair well when it comes to CPU intensive programs and games. I especially want to run programs like PhotoShop, and I generally want the ability to open up to 20 tabs at a time. I feel the Intel Core i5 2.4 Ghz could possibly cater to my needs and would be much better than the POS I have now. Unless someone has any other suggestions, I’m going with an i5. I’m possibly looking into the i7 to, essentially, “future-proof” my laptop choice, although I’ll have to save a little more in order to get that type of beastly laptop. My second option for a new phone would be the Samsung Galaxy S4; it’s a little cheaper than a laptop, but considering the differences and capabilities, you’d think a phone would be much, much cheaper. – Then again, they are essentially fitting a laptop into a tiny piece of hardware. So, phone or laptop? I’m more inclined to go with a better laptop because I use my laptop more often than my phone. Though, I find myself not using my phone because it’s a piece of crap. Would I actually use my phone more often if it was better? Possibly. I’d likely take more pictures, as my Samsung Galaxy S model is a little crappy when it comes to taking pictures. Which one would you choose &...
