My 6 years laptop is dying on me, so I am in need of an upgrade.
Price Range: Max $800
I will be using the laptop for surfing the internet doing school work and gaming. I would like if the laptop could run games like battlefield 4 without any problems. I am not picky on the brand just want something reliable and will last me at least four year.
For your price level they are exactly the same. The y410p are just smaller. For the more expensive models the y510p gets double graphics cards and the y410p does not, but you will not see this at a low price point. I think the cheapest with two graphics is $1000.
I like having a number pad so I get 15" always, but if that is not important to you, go for the 14" because you can get a higher resolution screen for cheaper.
