I have the choice between

R2 with an i7 and 1GB 335M
or
R3 with an i5 and 2GB 540M

Which do you think and why. Both are selling for around the same price.

Re: R2 or R3

The seller of the i7 64 OUM lists it as an R2 he may mean R3 or hiding the fact its an R1 but it definitely has the 335M.

The R3 has an i5 actually not an i3 I was mistaken and the 2GB 540M.

I may just go with the R2 since it has verified bumblebee support, I've heard optimus is incompatible with CUDA uses in Linux without it and the extra 1GB in vRAM isn't really useful to me.

But USB 3 and SATA 3 the hinge fix and the sandybridge i5 really have me contemplating.

On second thought the r3 is capable of quite a lot more than the r2.
