The main difference is that the W520 has nVidia Quadro (1000M or 2000M) graphics with 2GB VRAM, while the T520 may have an nVidia NVS 4200M 1GB VRAM, or just Intel HD 3000 graphics. Also, the W520 has 4 RAM slots (32GB max), while the T520 only has two (16GB max).

W520 also requires using a 135w or 170w psu.

What are you planning to do with one of these 12 year old legacy PCs?
