    computer question




      I am now about to buy a new computer. So far, I have found two computers which is set into my budget, I'm ready to buy but I really can't choose between those two and I wonder if you could give me some advice.


      So, I have posted exactly same thread on After Effects forum and Adobe Premiere Pro forum so I wrote this thread to compatible for both forum. I am going to use this computer for Full HD, 1280p video editing and I will be using After Effects, a lot. These two computers that I have picked have only i5 processor and I know that it should be i7 for better performance but within my budget I need to go for the lower processor. I have only 8GB RAM at the moment but I will be upgrading that, also I will be using an external storage so the 1000GB storage is enough for now.


      I have picked up Asus M51AD i5-4440 and Lenovo Erazer X310 the specs are listed below. I really don't know which one to pick, the price difference is around 80€. Asus is more expensive than Lenovo. Please give me your honest opinion.. Thank you
