Help on deciding a laptop for university!
I was wondering if anyone could help me find/decide on the best laptop for university. My price range is around $400-600, and I'm looking for something to use for video and photo editing, multimedia use and possibly light gaming.
My priories for a laptop would be:
2. Battery life
4. Design (Although this isn't listed that high, I would like to get a sleek laptop, an ultrabook/something that looks like a macbook would be awesome!)
i3 ultrabook (not as powerful but sleeker design and better portability): Lenovo u310 touch-$455 (I plan to use the $75 coupon and sell the $100 gift card to someone whose agreed to buy it) http://www.staples.ca/en/Lenovo-IdeaPad ... CA_1_20001
-third gen i3
-500gb hdd, 24 gb ssd cache
-13.3 inch touchscreen
i7 heavier laptop: Lenovo z580-$570 http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/cont ... ction=init
-third gen i7
-1 tb hdd
-15.6 inch screen
I am looking at these two laptops right now and I think its the best example of my dilema. What I mean is, would it be better to get the best specs for my price range regardless of size/portability, or get something sleek and more portable for university?
Any other suggestions? All help is welcomed, thank you!
