I am really confused :(
I need to be able to play BF4 at medium (or atleast low settings)

I will either buy baseline y410p
IdeaPad Y410p High-Performance 14" Multimedia Laptop from Lenovo | Lenovo (CA)

or acer Aspire V7-482PG-6662 Ultrabook
Buy the Acer Aspire V7-482PG-6662 - 14 - Core i5 4200U at TigerDirect.ca

1)How big of a performance difference and batterylife difference is there between 4200M and U? is it tangible? I mean can I do virtually all the things identically on either of laptops? including say playing bf4 at the lowest settings?
battery: about 3 hours on full brightness on wifi and internet is acceptable for me
weight: I can tolerate some weight difference.like if one is 0.5 lbs heavier

2) I know, one can add extra SSD in lenovo, via ngff or removing dvdrom, Can I do something about it in ACER?

3) your opinions, biases, experiences? Anyadvantages of expandability I have overlooked

4 prices: CAD 871 for acer, CAD 860 lenovo.

When will I buy? ASAP! -unless a very good deal is expected to come.

none! good or bad, depends.......can I add a ngff or any secondary harddisk IN acer? or increase 24 gb cache size, by replacing a card or something? I already have an external dvdrom.

I am looking for the best bang for the buck. A laptop on which, I can play BF4 (even if it's at lowest settings) and can last for atleast 3 years (ok, I will stop gaming in the 3rd year) . A laptop I can carry to university.

I know v7 would have lower performance, but would a I be able to feel it in real world? like, is it Iphone 5s vs 5c or it's Iphone 3gs vs 5c? I know the numbers, I can't understand the implications of those numbers.

I have a 1280x800 screen

All I see is 3000 score in passmark vs 3500 score (both scores made up by me, not actual ones)
