Samsung vs Lenovo, new laptop cs major


Sep 6, 2013
Just want some opinions on which would be best for the price, with quality into consideration as well.

The first 2 are samsung's pretty much the same except i5 and i7 and RAM. I am skeptical because as a cs major I need Linux installed and have heard samsung's bricking up from this. Does virtual box eliminate this?

The next two are lenovos, one an ultrabook, the other is comparible to the Samsung but more expensive. Both the lenovos have the os on ssd's which I like. Also they have touch screen but i dont care about that but will it cause more problems than its worth?
