Hi Experts,
I need some advice. We are looking to buy some refurbished notebooks. We will be using these notebooks to run Powerpoint presentations for the events that we do so they will need to be stable and powerful enough to deal with embedded hi-res videos etc. The two options of laptops we have:
Option 1: Proline Professional W540SU Notebook, 14" HD Screen, Core i3-4000M CPU, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB SATA HDD, Intel HD Graphics 4600
Option 2: Dell Latitude E6420, 14", Core i5-2540M CPU,  4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB SATA HDD, Intel HD Graphics 3000

Which would be the better option for our requirements? I3 with the better graphics or I5 with older HD graphics? 2nd option is about R 600 more which is about $48. I know these are much older generation systems but if they will work fine then that is all we need. I dont want an issue when we want to play 1080p video within our powerpoint presentations or outside of powerpoint. it has to run smooth and no lag
