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.
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.

W530 has better graphics, centered keyboard, Thinklight, and can take classic keyboard. Get instead.
lenovo T61 T7500, SXGA+, 8GB
lenovo T430 i5 3320m, HD+, 8GB
lenovo T500 P9700, WUXGA, 8GB
lenovo X201 i5 520m, WXGA, 4GB
lenovo T520 i7 2760QM, FHD, 8GB
