I'm looking to buy a new Laptop. I've narrowed my search down to 3-4 options. Acer-Asus-Dell & Lenovo. The PC has to have intel i5 or better.
I'm looking at something suitable for work (video editing, Wed-design) & average gaming. It seems like nvidia is the way to go for my needs.
So I have a few questions I want to ask to help find the best laptop for me.
-What is the "real world" difference between these Graphics cards best to worst?
Nvidia GTX 960M
Nvidia GTX 950M
Nvidia GTX 940M
* What about a Lenovo with Intel HD 520 card?
-Is an intel i5 6th Gen Better than an i7 5th Gen?
-If the laptop has an optical/DVD/CD drive can that be removed & a SSD drive in its place? I've heard that is an option.
-If so how does that work as far as filling the cavity left, do you need to get some kind of chassy?
-If the laptop has a 128 SSD HD & a 1TB HDD can I assume the SSD is a removable/upgradable drive & not fixed permanently to the motherboard?
I heard the models with the small 8 SSD & 1TD HHD have the SSD as a chip built onto the motherboard & can not be upgraded.
-How can I tell if the SSD can be removed/ upgraded?
-If the laptop has a upgradeable SSD how do I tell what type of SSD will work in the device? Like finding RAM compatibility.
-Is there anyway to tell how hard it is to open the compartment bins to get to things like the HDD & RAM?
Here are a couple of the laptops I'm looking to buy:
-My #1 so far: ASUS X555UB-NH51
-Lenovo Flex 3
Thanks for the help!
