Which Laptop is best for productivity, business & performance wise

1. Dell Inspiron 7537-INS-0692-SLR 15.6" FHD LED Touchscreen, Core i7 4510U (2/3.1ghz 4mb cache), 1TB HDD+8gb SSD, Ram-16gb 1600Mhz DDR3, nvidia graphics GT 750M-2gb and

2. Asus N551JK-DM002H 15.6" Full HD Matte Finish, Core i7 4710HQ (2.5/3.5ghz 6mb cache), 1TB HDD, Ram-8gb 1600 Mhz DDR3 expandable to 32gb, Nvidia graphics card-4gb GTX850M?

Any other laptop better than this plz mention the brand, model & configuration? I'm looking for expandable RAM upto 16gb or 32gb, more battery life & better wifi.


The Asus will be better because it has a quad core CPU vs the low power consuming dual core CPU in the Dell. However, the i7-4710HQ consumes 3x more power which will have a detrimental affect on battery life. The GTX 850m is a bit better for games than the GT 750m. You will need to decide what is more important to you... battery life or performance.

For typical office use like Excel, e-mails, Word documents both laptops are suitable. For CPU intensive task like data mining a database or running Monte Carlo simulations the Core i7-4710HQ will provide better performance.

@ jaguarskx - Thanks for the reply.

My main aim is to install vmware workstation & on top of it create 3 virtual machines of windows server 2008, windows server 2012 & Red Hat Linux to practice Windows Active Directory Services (AD) & vmware vsphere.

What about Lenovo 59-417149-Z5070-WH -- 15.6" Core i7 4510U 1.8ghz Ram - 8gb 1600 Mhz expandable to 16gb, 1TB HDD Nvidia Graphics card - 4gb?

what do you think will be the best?


I have no experience with VM, but I would say that the quad core i7-4710HQ is the better choice especially with more than 1 VM running. I would also assume AD is pretty CPU demanding as well since it is usual run on a server.

I think it is best to get some type of workstation laptop that would fit your needs, or a laptop capable of installing more than 16GB of RAM. Since I am not in the IT profession I cannot give advice based on my own experience. I can only recommend that you speak to the IT department (unless you are the IT dept.) or to your professional peers to give you better advice.
