So, I am trying to choose between two machines, and Im mainly concerned with performance and value. I will be using the machine for work purposes, using Zoom and MS Office programs (possibly at the same time), but also to run a DAW (to record instruments for long-distance music collaborations).

The two units Im looking at are:

1) a Dell Inspiron 15 5510 with 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11390H @ 3.40GHz, 1tb M.2, and 16 gb ram. I am not a huge fan of the non centered keyboard, and I do think 15" is a bit large, but both are things that are workable if the performance is better.

2) Lenovo T14 with:
Configuration Details
● Processor: AMD Ryzen™ 5 Pro 4650U Processor (2.10 GHz, up to 4.00 GHz Max Boost, 6 Cores, 12 Threads, 8 MB Cache)
● Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 11 Pro 64
● Display Type: 14.0" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS, anti-glare, 250 nits
● Memory: 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz (Soldered)
● Hard Drive: 512 GB PCIe SSD
● Warranty: 1 Year On-site
● Graphics: Integrated AMD Radeon™ Graphics
● Camera: 720p HD
● Fingerprint Reader: Fingerprint Reader
● Keyboard: Backlit - US English
● Wireless: 802.11AX (2 x 2) & Bluetooth® 5.2


I understand the screen on the Lenovo, at 250 nits will, in a word, suck. However I don't game at all and stream any TV shows onto my TV at home anyways. Im a little concerned about the Ryzen 5 and its performance.

Any help/input would be appreciated. THANK YOU!

Try the razer blade 14

normally I'm against razer products because they exploit child labor laws in Taiwan but it does seem like it (the blade 14) could be a perfect fit for you
