    I have seen some pros/cons about APU's. I would like to buy a 17" so are they much better than a regular CPU.

    Thanks

    Depending on what you want to do with it, what your budget is, what laptops you're looking at, etc.

    Glossing over much of the detail, but in summary an APU is great if you want budget gaming or just a better budget laptop overall, whereas Intel CPUs are great for number-crunching and all that jazz. But for most users, the differences are moot, so either or will work.
