Razor 13.3" vs Lenovo Thinkpad 15.6": Laptop Decisions

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Ultrabook Laptop:
Intel Core i7-8565U 4-Core, Intel UHD Graphics 620, 13.3" FHD 1080p, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
CNC Aluminum - Chroma RGB Lighting - Thunderbolt 3 Compatible
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L31JP62/

Lenovo 20NF0018US TS Tp E595 AMD:
Ryzen 7 3700U Syst 2.3G 8GB 256GB SSD 15.6In W10P
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SH7JDJL/re ... QDbKZG0M4Z

The Razor is a classic favorite and highly portable. The Thinkpad is 15.6" with a 300+ nit IPS screen, a great productivity laptop with a solid keyboard.

They'll both be getting a 32GB RAM upgrade and 1TB to 2TB NVMe SSD.

Which would you recommend, or would you wait for the i7 7010u lapdogs to start dropping this month?

Anyone have a base model Razor FHD screen. Worth it as a business screen? I'm also concerned with the keyboard for business purposes.

That thinkpad is 6lbs the razor is 3lbs. It is like deciding between a motocycle and a motorhome.

Why not both?
They both excel and suck at different things.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

It hurts more when it's true.

I could, but why throw $1700 USD at a problem.

I want to say Thinkpad but to be fair I've never used either of these models. Both look solid and are well reviewed, I can see your dilemma.

I'm biased, but I'd still take the thinkpad just because they are all business (no pun intended).

I'm a TrackPoint fan, so any keyboard with it is a win.
