There are a couple of laptops I am intersted in buying which differ in a very small but significant way.

I need OpenGL 3.2 support, DirectX 10 support and OpenCL support.

Laptops are Dell Inspiron 14 and Lenovo IdeaPad G450.


Specs are similar, with Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 14" 720p screen, bluetooth, wifi, etc.


Dell Inspiron 14
250GB 7200RPM HDD with FFS
ATI Radeon HD4330 512MB

Lenovo IdeaPad G450
320GB 5400RPM HDD
nVidia GeForce G210M 512MB

Now I need both good gaming performance under Windows 7 and full graphics support under 64bit Linux.

OpenCL if I'm not much mistaken is supported by Intel CPUs right ? AMD Released an x86 driver for OpenCL. If it works as it should, the fact that the GPUs don't support them is not much of a concern since I only want to *learn* and start *coding* with OpenCL, and not actually use it for performance.

Which laptop should I go for ?

And please gimme some pointers as to which is more reliable. I need it to last till 2013.
