Hi all, new poster here. Not sure this is the place for this question, sorry if I'm on the wrong sub-forum.
I need to get a new laptop for college but I have a tight budget. I want to be able to play Skyrim on the new laptop, ideally with STEP Core enhancements. I've tentatively narrowed down my laptop options to two systems, but even after looking around for a while online I'm still not sure how they compare and how well they'll run STEP.
LAPTOP A: Refurbished Dell Inspiron Z15 Ultrabook
CPU: i5 1.7GLV (that's all the specs I could see - it's from a non-profit that sells refurbished laptops to students)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 630M 2GB
LAPTOP B: Lenovo Z40-70
CPU: i7-4510U (2.00GHz 1600MHz 4MB)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 820M 2GB
How do these systems compare especially regarding how well they'd run STEP?
To me it looks like option B is obviously a much better system than option A, but I just wanted to make sure. If they're about equal in quality then I might go with option A because it comes with a 4 year warranty vs. a 3 year warranty for the Lenovo.
