Lenovo Ideapad Z500 i7 2GB graphics vs y510p i5 vs i7


May 6, 2014
Hello, I have a Core2Quad desktop and I want to upgrade (!) to a laptop now... So here are my choices:
1. Lenovo Ideapad Z500 (Core i7-3632QM Processor, 8GB (DDR3), NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M 2GB Graphics)
2. Lenovo Ideapad Y510p core i5
3. Lenovo Ideapad Y510p core i7

Now here are some facts:
1. I will use it for mostly net, movie, music and occasionally games like NFS or any other new racing games etc.
2. Both no.1 & 2 model cost are same here (77K).
3. Model 3 costs almost 87K here.

So, if anyone has any experiences with these products, can u suggest me which should I go for or any other products which can fulfill my requirements without increasing my budget??

Well I have the idea pad y410p its pretty much the same but smaller version it is a bit cheaper when I got it with the same specs but out of your current choices I would definitely go for the y510p with i7 I was simply blown away by how much it could do it also should come with the nvidia 755m which can run all games but maybe not max settings all the time also later you can swap out the DVD drive for a second 755m for even more performance its a really good deal
