What are you intending to use the laptop for? The Lenovo has a better CPU but it loses out in the GPU, HDD and Screen.

General use mainly. I need a secondary computer to my gaming rig. I would like a laptop that could play games ... moderately well. I dont need anything extremely powerful. But i also dont wanna buy something that might be "Outdated" soon..

And im aware that the lenovo has a better cpu, but not as good screen, hdd, or gpu.

I was wondering. Would getting the lenovo, be a smarter choice. because its a faster processor. Will the processor compensate for the lack of a bigger screen, hdd, and gpu.

Thats what im asking.

Or should i just pay $100 more and get the HP.

I'm leaning toward the HP

If gaming is a concern, get the HP. The i7 probably won't be able to make up for what the GT 240 lacks in the gaming department. The 4650 certainly isn't a top of the line card, but it is better than the 240. IMO the screen, GPU and HDD are all worth the extra $100.
