T Vs L series reccemendation

#1 Post by Whitieiii » Mon Mar 12, 2018 10:39 pm

there and real big differences between the T and L series with 5th and 6th gen i7? seeing what would be a better upgrade to my T440p for as cheap as possible... I'm not so concerned on the display and 1366x768 is more then enough for my needs with a dedicated gtx940mx but I'm more focused on internals should I go for something like a L450 or L460 or go for a T450 or T460? what would you recommend for someone on a budget?

T440s 4th gen i5 8GB ram 300GB SSD Win 10
T440p 4th gen i5 12GB ram GT 730m 500GB HDD Win 10

Intel generations really aren't that different anymore. A 4th gen vs 5th gen is basically unnoticable. If you can get the specs you want on a T440p over an L450, go for the 440. Also, the non-p machiens you mention don't have the high-performance CPUs, rather the slower dual core units.

I do already have a T440p and it it is fine ram wise and could benefit from an upgraded quad core CPU but it holding up good enough but really I'm trying to upgrade from a GT730M to a GTX940MX but don't know what to go with is all... I'm wanting quad core cpu 12 gb ram and a GTX940mx graphics... So it's between a T/L 450p and T/L 460p or I could get an Alienware 13 but I've never really liked Alienware or Dell or I could get a Lenovo Y series 14 inch but both of those are overpriced for what you get... I've yet to encounter anything that needs a gtx10xx card except for maybe the newest of new games/programs and even then I don't play or use them...

If you are going to keep your laptop fairly safe, don't take it everywhere, get the L-series. If you will be throwing it in a bag around places, get a T-series.
tl;dr Do you want your laptop made out of cheap plastic or decent plastic.
