Need advice deciding between two all round/gaming laptops

    Hi all

    Looking for a decent all round/gaming capable laptop at a budget of around £500. Have currently narrowed it down to the two laptops linked below.…ver…CNB

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.


    They both have the 840m in which isn't bad graphics, nearly identical to the 650m I had in a 17" 1080p Dell and that could handle most games at 1080p. Only thing is the dell was less than both of those laptops and that was two years ago.

    Weirdly the i5 with the lower number is actually better than the i7 in this case because the i7 is a U and the i5 is a M.
    The Lenevo graphics also has 4GB of ram, but that will make little to no difference compared to the 2GB in the HP, the 4GB might even be slower memory. The 840m will struggle with a high end game before it ever needs to use more than 2GB.

    If the HP is £500 and the Lenevo is £550 then HP all the way.

    HP also has really really good speakers. My Dell had two quite large stereo speakers and a sub, the HP has 4 speakers and two subs.
    HP also has wireless a/c and Lenevo just has N. HP weights less. Lenevo has one usb 3 and two usb 2. HP has four usb 3.
