Laptop Choice ?

Hi,

A family member wanted some help in choosing a new laptop and we came up with these two machines which should meet their performance / budget.

As a self build desktop user can advise on specs but no experience of the laptop brands which are Lenovo and HP.

Any thoughts on which is the better ?  Just looking at ytubes of both having the covers removed the Lenovo seems better made to our eyes, though looks can be deceiving.

Another faster Lenovo at a similar price to the above 2

If the laptop is for serious use, I'd buy one from the 'for business' section. Yes, these seem to offer less bang for the buck but these typically use better components and are better built.

NiHaoMike:
Most important in my opinion is to make sure the RAM can be upgraded. 8GB is pretty low and is easily outgrown.

my quick-foo tells me the Lenovo V15 G2 is clear winner, assuming its within your budget. mainly because 6 cores Ryzen 5 5500U. even if its a little more expensive than the rest. we cant upgrade CPU later so we must aim high in the first place. RAM/NVME/HDD can be added later. if its me i'll buy that Lenovo V15 G2 + additional 8GB RAM (ask the seller to install for you) for total 16GB RAM. for normal human, the 256GB SSD is enough. in case you want to become abnormal, you can upgrade to 512GB NVME + X TB HDD later on anyway.

When you see "for business" in a laptop description, read it as "we think you can carry this one around in your bags, on various forms of transport, for at least the warranty period, without trouble". If its not described as "for business" assume it will be fine when used at home, but probably won't stand up to endless carrying.
