IDEAPAD Z50 ( 59-427802) VS IDEAPAD Z510 (59-405838)
I am planning to buy a laptop and i am confused b/w the above mentioned models . Z50 ( 59-427802) has a 4200U processor(1.6ghz) but a better gpu nvidia 840M 4Gb and 8 Gb RAM whereas Z 510 (59-405838) has a 4200M(2.6ghz) processor with nvidia 740M 2Gb and 6 Gb RAM. the main use would be running designing softwares like Solidworks and Ansys(mechanical engineering) with regards to performance which will be better. please suggest .
I am not sure how much this application will depend on the GPU. but if you go for Z510 59 405848 then you can extend the RAM upto 16GB as it has the 2 unused slot and get the high performance in combination with 4200M. Also 2GB GPU looks sufficient to me but not sure how much your applications will required. Lenovo Ideapad Z510 59-405848 (Ci5/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Win8.1/ 1GB Graphic)
