Purchasing a new laptop. Need input!
Return to board index
Hello. Thanks for the help beforehand.
Need a new laptop (last one took a coke bath) and looking at these two:
1: Lenovo Y500 i5-3230m GT650 SLI 6GB 1tb.HD $700
2: MSI GE40 i7-4702 GTX760 8GB 750GB.hd/128ssd $700
Btw. I really do not want to spend more than $700. I am patient to save a LITTLE BIT more.
I am using this mainly to play WOW and wife uses auto cad here when not at work
MSI looks like the better option
Depends a lot on your usage. What are you looking to do with it? Do you need the extra processing power between the i5 and the i7? or is the extra hard drive space more valuable?
Don't bother with dual graphics. The laptop will run really hot, you won't be able to play games without it being plugged in, getting dual graphics working is annoying at best and impossible at worst.
The MSI with the i7 and the GTX 760m wins there. You can always get a nice, thin, 1TB external hard-drive if you need more than the 128GB.
