Usage: Web development and web/graphic design softwares mostly (adobe cc illustrator, photoshop, visual studio)
Screen size : at least 15 inch
I have finalized the below 2 laptops :
Lenovo ideapad 320
Acer Swift 3 Ryzen 5
However i’m not able to decide between the two as both have some visible issues:
Lenovo ideapad : The only issue i have with this one is the 720p only display which might be an issue for web designing purposes.
Acer swift 3: I have 2 issues with this one: 1) No expandable ram slot. 2) No dedicated graphic processor and I’m not really sure about the display quality and performance of its integrated graphic processor radeon vega 8.
So i have mainly 3 questions:
I have never worked on a 720p screen for my web development/design. Do you think it would be a major problem in the long run ?
None of these laptops contain SSD so i’m planning to upgrade that post purchase. How big of a difference does SSD make over older HDD for my usage (web development and designing) ?
Finally of course, which laptop would you prefer?
Also, please suggest any other laptop which you feel would be better in this price range.
If you mean to say that asus tends to be more reliable brand than lenovo. My personal experience is limited to Asus. I mostly buy exclusive asus models for this reason my current lapto(s) are 5 and 8 years old and still going tho the hardware is VERY dated, but Asus is a somewhat premium brand and you often pay extra for the same hardware(although not nearly as bad as Apple). he was asking about Budget laptops. I sincerely doubt that acer or Lenovo laptops will break before they are dated the only brand i’d stear clear of are Apple products and HP Products. Although there may be people with good experiences having these brands. I know for a fact that HP as a company will have stuff last just to warrenty. Just so they can sell you a new one and apple is even worse in this regard(they may refuse to repair whithin warrenty for (insert dumb reason))
