Trying to decide between two laptops. Which one is likely to be faster?

Laptop A: 1.7gHz + 6GB RAM - also has a 32GB SSD.

Laptop B: 2.5 gHz + 4GB RAM - can go to 3.1gHZ with Turboboost.

What do you recommend?? Which one will run best?

The 32Gb SSD could be used as a cache using Smart Response Technology. More info is required.

In the little experience I have, the specs of my pc will always depend on the purpose. If I would be doing extensive graphics/video editing, I prefer one with a much higher memory speed. If purely documents, email, etc., I go for cheaper ones that aren't so "high-end."

If I got the budget and can splurge on a pc, I'd go for one with a much higher CPU speed and upgrade memory to the max capability.
