I want to buy a new laptop and found that these two models are suitable for me,
I wondered if you guys can help me to decide which one is better.
Lenovo G550 295892G
15.6" HD LED
T6600 2.2GHz CPU
4GB DDR3 RAM
500GB 5400RPM HD
T6600 2.2GHz CPU
4GB DDR2 RAM
320GB 5400RPM HD
it's obvious that the specs of the Lenovo seems better, but a friend told me that Lenovo's drivers and apps (at least wifi and finger print thing) are buggy, and it seems that the Compaq is very user friendly, the Compaq also has a cool design
I would be grateful to hear some of your advices ...
Hi lotri, thanks for your reply.
I'm from Israel and my budget is ~4000 nis (shekels) ...
I guess that won't help to much here
But generally speaking if the prices are similar in the US, the should be similar here also..
my budget should be around the price of the models mentioned ..
sorry but I don't know how much they cost out of Israel, couldn't find them on newegg,
and I'm not familiar with other online stores abroad ..
I eventually bought the HP Compaq one, mostly because it was cheaper and from a store I trust,
(BigBox Israel) couldn't get the Lenovo with similar price from an official importer store.
Can't say much about the Lenovo ...
About the HP Compaq, I'm quite satisfied from this laptop. Even thought most of the programs I run
on this laptop are internet browser, skype and watch HD movies (720p and 1080p looks great on my LG Full HD TV using the HDMI) on vlc, it works flawlessly, I haven't bumped into any problems for now and it looks pretty *sexy* too so generally I recommand you to give it a try.
An important note about the CQ61-430EJ model.. the specs shows that it has 320GB Harddisk 5400RPM,
and it's even written in the website of most of the stores in Israel. But it's actually is a 320GB Harddisk 7200RPM ... was nice to figure it out after I bought it
