So ive been doing some research about upgrading to a new laptop since im worried my current ones days are neigh.
Currently i have a Lenovo U400 and i loved it (almost to death is seems) has an i5 6g ram and discrete graphics (some mobile radeon 1g videoram)
I've been looking around and seeing my price options and i think ive narrowed it down to 2
The HP envy 15-t which comes with
4th generation Intel® Core™ i5-4200M Processor
• NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M Graphics with 2048MB of dedicated video memory
• 15.6-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit Display (1366x768)
• 6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
• 750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
• 24GB flash Hard Drive Acceleration Cache
which comes out to be about alittle under 700, i could opt in for more ram (8gb) and full hd screen for 40 and 50 respectively
The other choice is the Lenovo Y510P
which comes with
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.40 GHz)
Operating system: Windows 8.1 Standard 64 - English
Display: 15.6" HD WXGA (1366 X 768) LED Backlight w/720p HD Camera
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M Graphics
Memory: 8 GB (2 x 4G PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600MHz SODIMM Memory
Hard Drive: 1TB, 5400RPM Serial ATA 2.5" Hard Drive
for about 750
I would use it for some gaming but i already have a gaming desktop. I was leaning toward the Hp since i like its aesthetics and its a bit thinner but hardware for money lenovo has a bit of an edge. The only two things that i am unsure of about each is battery life or if they have wiDi compatibility.
So...opinions? or any other recommendations?
