thanks for the help guys, i really appreciate it!
why is the i5 better? i can add ram also like you said, would that help? the one you posted, its a pretty good one do you think?
the i5 is better than what? You posted an i5, I posted an i5.
You can always add RAM to a laptop. That is one thing that is interchangeable. In reality, though, 4GB is enough for most things these days.
I only recommend good systems, so to answer your question, yes.
Ideapads are the consumer level of Lenovo. They are not as sturdily made as the Thinkpads. (business level)
and why do we frown upon HP's? xD
Because several of us that know it, HP had many problems throughout the years. Plus, their Customer Service isn't what I'd call great.
