I recently baught the lenovo p500 (699.00)

specs: Intel® 3rd Generation Core™ i5 (2.6GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz)

WXGA high-definition widescreen LED-backlit 10-point multitouch (1366 x 768)



SATA (5400 rpm)



, digital media card reader

Intel® HD Graphics 4000

Built-in Webcam

Built-in 10/100

Bluetooth-Enabled Ethernet LAN

1 USB 3.0; 2 USB 2.0


Windows 8


 Im looking to exchange it for this

HP - ENVY TouchSmart 17.3" Touch-Screen Laptop - 8GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive




Just wondering if there is a huge difference between the two. Converting of movies and some pic editing is my main concern i dont want to have any problems or slow downs while doing this. Right now with the lenovo p500 I dont seem to see  any problems or slow downs.

Whats your opinion of the two? Thanks to all who help ahead of time

There is some differences, the HP has an i7 processor which is much more powerful then the i5 in the Lenovo. Having a faster processor will cut down on time it will take to convert movies.

I have to agree with Killer, a better CPU will give you more of the power you want for your video converting.
