Hi,

im looking for a budget laptop for some video editing purpose.

i've zeroed in on based on the availability here.

 

lenovo G50 with

i5-5200U

8GB  DDR3L ram ( comes with 4GB but its got an empty ram slot. so i will add another 4GB stick )

AMD Radeon R5 M230 2GB graphics

 

dell vastro with

i5-4210U

8GB DDR3 ram

NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M 2GB graphics

 

which one should i go for considering the three specs and manufactures. i dont know which is better. please help.

they both have about same cost i.e considering the extra ram i'll buy if i go for lenovo.

Thanks.

Essentially these two are exactly the same (if you upgrade to the 8GB).  You would see almost no difference between them if you had them side by side they would perform almost exactly alike.  So then you should go with whichever gives you the best warranty.

My Opinion:

Go with Nvidia

Because they always provide latest drivers.

I would definitely choose NVIDIA, even though the second combination has a newer processor.
