Hi, I am looking to buy a laptop for school assignments, and I'll be using Ableton Live music production software on it in my spare time. My budget is a maximum of €600 ($683).
I have been looking at the two below in particular. Any input at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Laptop #1 https://www.currys.ie/ieen/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-14-ce0002sa-14-intel-core-i5-laptop-128-gb-ssd-silver-10180755-pdt.html

Laptop #2

1 is better as it has 8GB of RAM, but that SSD is barely enough for just the OS, you will have to replace it.

2 only has 4GB of RAM, not really enough, will need at least 8, but the HDD has 1TB so enough space for what you need.

I'd get #1 if those are your only choices, buy a 500GB - 1TB SSD, swap it out and call it a day.

I'm not familiar enough with your market to suggest any alternatives for you.

Look for at least 8GB i5 8xxx series HQ, and storage space of at least 1TB HDD or 500GB SSD.
