    New Laptop for Student?


    Good morning all and I apologize if there is a more appropriate subthread: I'm looking for recommendations for a student laptop. Currently I am looking at the below three units. My typical usage is internet, moderate coding, and moderate video editing. Between the processor and RAM, I am not sure which would be expected have better performance, or if the thinkpad will last significantly longer than the ideapad justifying the price difference between the two lines. Otherwise any additional recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well. Lenovo ThinkPad T490 (Intel i7-8665U Processor, 8 GB RAM 2400MHz) Lenovo ThinkPad T14s (AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650U Processor, 8 GB RAM 3200MHz) Lenovo Ideapad 5 14 (AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Processor, 16 GB RAM 3200MHz) Thank you for your help!

    :)

    Hi,

    My 2 pennyworth.

    I know little of brands or which might be better then the other and in any case most of those opinions would be subjective.

    I know your a student and having to cart this laptop around but video editing on a 14 inch screen, is it really that much more cumbersome to carry a slightly larger laptop?

    I see your choices have plenty of USB 3 ports, can't have enough of those and at least 2 HDMI ports if at all possible that way you can attach a spare larger monitor or TV.

    I am an AMD fan although my aging laptop is an intel 3rd gen iCore 5 affair and my PC is antique yet both still going strong.

    When buying my laptop I got a bit carried away with specs and didn't consider battery life, fully charged my laptop, an ACER, 2&1/2 hours max from new so I would say battery life is and important consideration in a students life and laptop.

    If my children and grandchildren are anything to go by, internal storage, what do they do with it, I would say any self respecting student can make short work of a 550gb SSD, so the more internal the better but a 2TB external backup is a must.

    My LT and PC chug along happily on 4 & 8 GB of ram but 16gb of ram I think is a minimum for a students laptop although 8gb is just fine.

    CPU brand and type, that debate is ceaseless but as I wrote, I like AMD and Ryzen are doing so much better then anyone ever thought but won't knock Intel but suspect my PC would come to a standstill with anything that suggests intensive so sgo for the best CPU and gen' your budget allows.

    For your laptop I note you have not included a cooling stand or mat, get one.

    Your choices look great, I'm not a Lenovo fan but then I'm not a Dell fan either. *Smile
