Hi,
I've got a £900 budget for a new laptop. I've narrowed it down to two:

Lenova Y510p:

Envy 17-j053ea
(http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/...)

I'm looking to dual boot OSX and Win8. Which one do you guys recommend?

Heyo!

On Y510p: +24GB SSD,Better vga(not a real difference),but not 17" display,4GB more RAM. Its known lenovo's touch pad is still crap.
On HP Envy: 17" display, 4GB less RAM.

So 12GB RAM is far enough, that 24BG SSD is a low qaulity slow one imo or a hybrid. There is a minimal difference in vga.
So I vote for HP Envy, because 17" screen is awesome.

Have fun!

Would it be possible to give me the link to the caddy/cable you bought for this?

Thanks
