Hi, I'm going to college in the fall, and I'm trying to find a good laptop to buy. I will probably be majoring in engineering with a focus in product design, so I want a laptop that can handle CAD programs as well as design programs. I really like the Levono Yoga 920, but I'm concerned about the ULV processor. I'm not clear on the difference between a ULV processor and a regular one. Can someone please help? I know barely anything about computers, so if you could keep it simple that'd be great!

Hi Olivia123,

ULV means "Ultra Low Voltage". It means that the processor is a low consumption one (better battery life, less heat etc...)
That's the kind of processor used in ultraportable laptops.

The laptop you choose has a 4 core 8 thread i7, which is good, but no graphics card and only 8Go of RAM, which is less good...
Furthermore, with the integrated graphics, I think you'll be limited in CAD and design softwares.


Rodolphe.
