Hey guys, so my computer finally kicked the bucket. I'm trying to replace it, though my budget is only 500 on such short notice (I need a computer for work)
My previous computer had an
AMD-A8-5557M quad core processor
The one I'm looking at now has a
i3-6100U dual core.
Well, I figure I'll just post links to both of the computers' specs. They aren't exact, but they are as close as I could find. I will note that each laptop has 1 TB of space, 8 gb of ram.
Here's my old computer (nearly) https://www.amazon.ca/Acer-15-6-Inch-V5-552-8824-Quad-Core-Processor/dp/B00I9Y5SBA
And here's the one I'm looking to replace it with (nearly):
Sorry, it's the best I can find on the net (i'm buying it slightly used from a trusted computer store, but I've tested thoroughly and it seems mint)
I'm just trying to figure out if I'm downgrading, or upgrading, and if I'm upgrading, I'd like to know roughly how much better this new laptop is, or how much worse. I'm trying to understand how to really assess hardware so that when I go to buy a computer in the future, I won't have to second guess whether or not I'm being ripped off.
I don't really care about power consumption, etc. My main concerns are primarily performance. I'll be running 3D rendering software, photoshop, maybe a couple games if I get bored, and I really want to know if my computer activities are going to be hindered or boosted by this little setback.
All help is highly appreciated.

can you help me with this flashing on my Lenovo A328? I downloaded the firmware, installed usb drivers and sp flash tool. Once I opened SP Flashtool, and started the process, it doesn't do anything. No red bars on the bottom or yellow bars. Nothing.
Can anyone help?
Besides Avast and Malwarebytes what else do I need to stay free from viruses, malware, etc.
>Besides Avast and Malwarebytes what else
I install Malwarebytes when I go to fix other people's computers but personally I just use Windows Defender. Unless there's a vulnerability (which are fixed by updates), the only way you'll get a virus is if you run shady programs. Use Sandboxie or virtual machines if you need to run shady programs.
Running multiple antiviruses is unnecessary. If you're worried about security, install GNU/Linux.
