Question How to upgrade laptop?

May 20, 2024
Good day.
I want to buy Lenovo ThinkPad T16 Gen3, but have questions regarding which specs I should prioritize, to get most performance for money.

I will use my laptop for work. I always have many Microsoft Outlook windows open (30-40 emails in the same time), I have many Chrome tabs open (300-400 tabs in multiple windows), in the same time this is open: Adobe, Teams, Word, Excel and several other programs of similar nature. All is open in the same time, all day, late nights. I rarely restart my laptop.

So, question is what is best setup for my use?
Should I choose:

1. Intel Core Ultra 5 135U or Intel Core Ultra 7 155U?
2. 16 GB or 32 GB memory?
3. 16" WQUXGA (3840 x 2400) or 16" WUXGA (1920 x 1200)?
4. Regarding battery: What are the benefits and drawbacks of 4 Cell 52.5Wh vs 4 Cell 86Wh battery? Is 86 Wh physically larger and heavier?
5. There are four options of Power Cords. What is the difference between 2 pin and 3 pin AC adapter?

Thank you.
