I am having difficulty choosing the most appropriate laptop for my work. I usually use my laptop for statistical software and programming (SPSS, R, Stata, Excel), and multitasking (Microsoft Office and Chrome browsing with multiple tabs). I came across these two laptops, and I am having difficulty choosing which is the best. Here is the detail of the two laptops:
1. Model: Lenovo Ideapad Slim 7 Pro Processor: Intel Core i7-11370H RAM: 16GB Storage: 1 TB SSD OS: Windows 11 Home 64x Display: 14" FHD (2880x1800) Battery: 61 Wh Price: 850 USD Other features: Touchscreen 2. Model: Lenovo Ideapad Slim 5 Processor: Intel Core i7-1065G7 RAM: 16GB Storage: 512GB SSD OS: Windows 10 Home 64x Display: 15.6" FHD (1920x1080) Battery: 57 Wh Price: 725 USD
Personally, I think Lenovo Ideapad Slim 7 Pro is superior in terms of performance and battery life (which is the two most important specs for me since I will be using my laptop for coding/programming and I will probably carry my laptop to places without outlet. However, I was wondering whether the upgrades (battery, storage, OS, touchscreen, model) are worth 125 USD.
Furthermore, for those using Lenovo Ideapad Slim 7 Pro, can I have your opinions especially in build quality, heating issues, etc.?
Any insights will be much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance
