I am between two laptops and I cannot decide which one I should buy. I have to admit that my knowledge of computers is inadequate.

 

My budget for the new computer is: €450

The primary uses for this computer are: web browsing, some programming, watching movies, listening to music and using virtual machines.

The software I intend on using on the computer is:  VLC media player, VMware Player, Adobe Reader, NetBeans, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, µTorrent

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? I don't play games.

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? Yes, I tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time and I close every program when you are done using it.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Yes, I store some pictures and music on the computer but not too much.

Will you be overclocking? No.

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? *

How many monitors are you planning to use?
One.

Do you need peripherals? OS? I don't need peripherals. I need OS.

Any particular reason why you are upgrading? I need to upgrade.

"Lenovo G50-45" seems to be a very good option;

  • CPU: AMD A6-6310 (2.40GHz)
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Graphics card: AMD Radeon R5 M230
  • Cost: €399.00

"HP 250" is - I feel - a bit more reliable;

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3230M (2.60 GHz)
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Cost: €449.00

 

What are your thoughts and suggestions?

I think HP is better.

It has only 4gb ram but i5 is really good and Graphic card is better than this in Lenovo.

Is "Intel HD Graphics 4000" better than "AMD Radeon R5 M230"? I believe "AMD Radeon R5 M230" has memory of its own (2GB).
