Based on this comparison, AMD definitely win in terms of TDP(lower watt = lower battery consumption). When its plugged-in, intel definitely better.

Yes now with that 7.8Gb of RAM, I hope you are satisfied. This is not a con. If you had done your research right you would have understood. Anyway as long as your happy. I would go with better processor any day than more RAM. In fact both goes hand in hand. But did you even stop to think 5.9gb usable RAM is because it's been used by the Graphic processor. How funny!
