Lenova Y510p VS HP Envy 17-j053ea?

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/hp-envy-17-j053ea-17-laptop-silver-21492783-pdt.html)

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

  1. 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!

    I can confirm that exact one does, I bought one yesterday, but now I am looking for a compatible cable for it.
