I have, it is hard to find a direct comparison. All I want is a simple answer in laymans terms so I can decide which out of 2 Pcs to buy. Just after people's opinions who know what they are talking about.

Same as yourself googled it and what I read pointed to the Intel i5 being the best but to tell the truth I don't really have a clue.

No doubt someone will be able to give you the correct information.

The AMD may have a faster clock speed but the Intel's performance is significantly faster in both single and multi-core operations. The Intel is therefore the better performer.

However, if you plan to use "On-Board"! Graphics, then they say that AMD has it

I am weighing up which of 2 Pcs to buy. They seen to have the same specs (8GB RAM, 1TB HD, Windows 10) but one has the i5 4460 and the other has A10, which I believe has R7 graphics card. The Intel one doesn't state graphics, integrated or otherwise. The AMD is in a HP, the Intel in a Zoostorm.They are very similar in price, so trying to get opinions on which would be the better one. I have limited knowledge on stuff like this, hence my question.

KP, Eddie and I have already answered your question, but I'll try to explain again:

The Intel i5 is by far the fastest CPU. If on the other hand you intend to do a lot of low-level gaming then the AMD's graphic capabilities are significantly better. Both processors have graphics chips built into them - Radeon R7 for the AMD and Intel® HD Graphics 4600 for the i5.

It's not hard to find a direct comparison if you amend your search term to:

Amd A10-9700 vs Intel Core i5 4460

you will get results like this benchmark click here
