Ordered was : Intel core i5 quad core with nvidea gt620.
This one is : AMD 6 core with radeon 7570.
I don't know how much difference there would be in terms of performance but this one is 70 cheaper so...
The processors perform about the same on benchmarks. As far as GPUs, the Radeon HD 7570 offers twice as much memory as the GeForce GT620 (though they both run the slower GDDR3). They both have 10GB of RAM, and 2TB HDDs, but this one comes with a 16GB SSD cache.
Overall, this is a better unit, and cheaper to boot.
