My computer is a i5, 1600x900 screen, with 128SSD and 8GB of RAM and Windows graphics.
The t550 is a i5 with Windows graphics, FullHD screen and 256GB SSd and 16GB of Ram. Price 500 dollars.
The t560 is i7, graphics GTX 940mm, 8GB RAM, 3k display, and 128GB SSD. Price 550 dollars.
I am little entendico in these aspects so I would appreciate vustra opinion.
The one I think will be the ideal team is the t550 with a dedicated graphics, but I have now available in the market.
The inconvenience of the t560 is that I can not put a second solid disk SSD. But it has the graphics card and a newer screen with more resolution.
What do you think?
With the T520 I have been very happy, is my fourth ThinkPad, T42, T60, T500, and this last T520...

In all those laptops you can add a second SSD in the WWAN-slot, either mSATA or M.2 or NVMe, depending on slot-version.
If you mostly need graphics, have you considered an eGPU for your T520 instead?

To upgrade the ram that i have now , 2x4gb to 16gb it cost around 150 dollars, plus the new CPU that it cost at least 80-100 dollars...it is a good investemt considering that I can sell this t520 for 200 dollars and get the t550 or the t560 for the money of those parts??
Can I replace my existing 16 GB M.2 SSD(cache drive) with 128GB M.2 SSD and boot windows from this drive?
I want to use my existing HDD alongside 128 GB M.2 SSD and do not want to compromise on Wifi connectivity
Your guidance will help me decide if i should purchase a M.2 SSD or SSD replacement against HDD
