I am stuck between the Lenovo K430 i7 for $899 from Walmart (specs below) vs. the Lenovo H520s i7 for $729.
My use: Primarily work productivity. This is for my home work environment in my apartment (750 sf NYC). Excel spreadsheet modeling, reseach and building presentations in powerpoint. I am usually reviewing built models but sometimes I build them as well when needed. When I perform research, I usually have 10-30 tabs open on the internet. I don't play games or intend to watch movies on the machine.
K430 from Walmart: 12 gb ram, 2 tb hard drive, primarily a "gaming" machine but my understanding that this is in the middle of the market for gaming machines. A bit bulky compared to the
H520s from Lenovo: 8 gb ram, 2 tb hard drive. Slim chassis (which I find really appealing because it is quite a bit smaller than the K430). Intel graphics card (compared to the higher end graphics card above, no wireless adapter (but I understand that I can buy a cheap adapter online?), and $170 cheaper than the K430.
Your help is greatly appreciated!
