    Hi there, I am looking to buy a G75 BBK5 but there are two configurations available (they are both ex-demo, 3 months warranty)

    A: CPU i7-3720QM, 32GB DDR3 1333MHz - NZ$2380
    B: CPU i7-3820QM, 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - NZ$2565
    the rest is the same for both laptops.

    I want to do multi layer HD video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro 5.5, After Effects, Photoshop and Lightroom.

    Which is best suited?
    Would the 3820 with its extra cache and small boost in clock, coupled with the faster RAM be a worthy increase in performance to offset the lose of 16GB from RAM and the extra price?
    Would the slower 1333MHz RAM be a noticeable?

    What are your thoughts?
