Hello,

I am about to buy a Lenovo ThinkPad.
Its a T520, i7 2640M, 15. inch display, SSD, 4 GB RAM

I am given an option of 65 W or a 90 W adapter. Both are of same cost.

Please advise which to get?

My particular needs:
• I intend to take out my Li ion battery and keep it away as my laptop is always connected to the power cord.
• Also where I live it is very very hot for 9 months of the year. Like perpetually 90 degrees.
• Price of both is same

Thanks a lot
Justin

You should look for specification sheets on your laptop manufacturer's web site to determine the input wattage requirements.

Lenovo is offering both the 65 W and the 90 W chargers for the laptop. They are also asking for no additional cost. So I assume that both are compatible... only question is which is right for my need. I never intend to do hardcore multi tasking or power and CPU intensive tasks like video editing etc. I just use for business purpose and it is very hot where I live

Hi :) 

Those choices have nothing to do with speed of cpu etc, they are about speed of charging only...

All the best Brett :)
