Coming up with a few questions looking for some feedback on a Lenovo Thinkpad P51 or P52.

P52 has newer i7-8750H 6 core (no option for Xeon) vs the P51 Xeon E3-1505M.
The P51 has M2200 4GB vs the P52 P1000 4GB.
How much of a difference will a 3840x2160 vs 1920x1080 display make?
Standard 16GB memory how much will 32GB or even 64GB make a difference (leaning towards getting 32GB)?
I can upgrade the SSD on the P51 to 1TB (for only $50.00) and still have a 500GB HD installed(no credit to take out). I assume the OS will be installed on the SSD and the HD can be used as a internal backup for files?

Thanks in advance

You can fit a lot more on the higher res screen, but if they are the same size screen things can get too small. For anything under 17" I would stick with a 1080 or 1440 screen.

The specs you need depend on what programs you will be running on it.
