t540p vs w530

#1 Post by thorghal » Thu Sep 14, 2017 10:57 am

Hello I would like to ask U guys question which one to choose:

t540p that is about 420$ specs:
Intel Core i3 4000M 2,40 GHz, 3M Cache
LED, matte
FHD – 1920 x 1080

w530 that is about 550$ specs:
ThinkPad W530 2447-9Q7
Intel® Core™ i7-3840QM Processor 2,8Ghz - MaX Turbo 3.8 GHz
IPS 15,4 WXGA matte LED FullHD 1920x1080
1000GB HDD sata 2,5
8 GB DDr3 (do 32GB) 4y sloty na ram
2GB Nvidia Quadro K2000M / Intel HD
+ docking station

or maybe U could give some other ideas which to buy? i'm from poland so oversea purchase is not rlly an option due to high custom duty.

I recommend the W530!!!

Buying the T540p would be like shooting yourself in the foot.
Welcome to the jungle, we have FrankenPads
If you want it you're going to bleed, but that is the price to pay
And you're a very rare mobo, very hard to get
You can see the blinky lights, but you won't get them for free.

W530 has better graphics, centered keyboard, Thinklight, and can take classic keyboard. Get instead.
Daily driver: lenovo T500 P9700, WUXGA, 8GB
Ultraportable: IBM lenovo X60s
Home theater: lenovo T420
