Be aware this is the wrong forum for this kind of stuff - I believe it should go in the off-topic section.

However, the G510 listed will likely be substantially faster than the other system despite the lack of an SSD, given that it has a newer, full-power, quad-core CPU versus the Vivobook's low-voltage, old, dual-core CPU, as well as the faster GPU in the G510. The extra RAM doesn't hurt, either.

I see, will post this kind of stuff in off topic next time.

The Asus will boot faster due to the SSD, it has a touchscreen display , that is a nice feature , and the battery will last longer due to the use of a low wattage cpu,  but the Lenovo is better:

The CPU in the lenovo is more powerful
It has the double of ram memory.
The integrated graphic card in the lenovo is 1 generation ahead (HD4600 vs HD4000) so it should perform a bit better.

Thus the difference in price.

just the ssd is not a valid excuse to chose the asus, better CPU , better graphics and the doube of ram memory are more important IMHO. Besides its just a 24gb ssd, it would last the S.O and one or two programs . It's your call but in that case , try to find another laptop with a larger ssd,

4th gen is a good deal better than the 3rd gen intel.. runs cooler and longer battery life. the hybrid SSD drive isn't all that great, in my opinion. your o/s is bigger than 24GB, so it won't even be loaded on the drive.

SSD's are dirt cheap these days. Buy the better proc and grab a cheap v300 SSD.

Don't mine with laptops. You're not gonna make your monies worth back and you'll probably just fry it. I once had a laptop that set on fire from constant torrenting alone. Either spend the money you was gonna buy on some coin, or get a half-decent rig.

Has 24 gb ssd, but is i7 1.9

or

4th generation, but has 5400rpm hd, no ssd

Which is easier? To upgrade the drive or processor?  Wink

BTW, both ThinkPad and Ideapad have a storage adapter which can be used to replace DVD Drive with additional 2.5" Drive. Dunno if it's fit into G-series, however.
