Is this all I need to determine a computer's performance?

Hi all.

I'm trying to determine which laptop to buy. All I really need to know is how good the processor will be (being as I struggle to understand the difference between the intel and AMD chips). Please can I ask if this site is all I need: click here to be more precise, is the CPU Mark total (in red) all I need to know for performance?

Thank you in advance.

Read this PCA magazine.

And this: AMD Vs Intel

I think Intel are better regarded. You do not mention budget, nor the purpose for which you are buying the laptop. I would have thought as a start, look at 5th generation i5 Intel ones
