Thread: Lenovo or HP

  1. #1

    Default Lenovo or HP

    I'm thinking of getting another laptop for my daughter. I just can't decide if it is HP or Lenovo. What would you suggest?

    She's turning 16 this year. The budget? Would $200-$300 worth be reasonable?

    When it comes to HP & Lenovo they are both as good, it really boils down to the model.
    Here is a comparison for the different brands:



    Source: Laptopmag

    The things to look out for her in a laptop would probably be:
    • Full HD screen: anything less would just suck especially that show probably wants to watch YouTube, Series & Movies.
    • Small size: I don't think she would want anything bigger than a 15" screen. Anything bigger than that wouldn't fit as easily in normal bags.
    • Fast Hard drive: I don't think she will need a lot of storage, most things are done online these days. Having a fast hard drive can dramatically increase the speed of the laptop.
    I don't think she would care for a dedicated graphics card for gaming or a DVD writer and so on.

    This is outside the budget you estimated but this would be in my opinion a solid purchase for many reasons. There are things that I would have gotten rid off or scaled down to save money, like the fingerprint stuff but as I said this is a solid choice. Backlight keyboard, extremely fast hard disk (Solid State Disk), full HD screen, solid processor and so on. I think that a laptop like this one is a lot more future proof than most laptops around the same price range.

    I couldn't find a cheaper one but I didn't search outside their official stores. I am sure you can find cheaper ones. I was surprised that I couldn't find a cheaper one myself. Worst case scenario, get a stripped down 15" or 14" full HD screen laptop with an i5 or i3 processor with a shitty hard disk and switch it out for an SSD.

    That is what I would do based on my priorities and preferences. I am sure there are many ways to go about making a pick for such a purchase.

    Edit: lol, forgot to link to the laptop :P

    We had 2 HPs here but lasted for 2 years only. So I don't like to recommend. I don't have experience with Lenovo yet but I'm hearing good feedback from my friends who are office workers. So, I think Lenovo is preferred by most companies considering its durability and competitive price.

    I've been using Asus laptops for years with no failures. A feature-to-feature comparison usually yields more bang for the buck with Asus over "name" brands like Dell or HP. Can't speak for Lenovo - no experience there.

    My latest laptops have SSD hard drives and boot nearly instantly, but capacity is lower compared to a magnetic hard drive of the same price.

    I think you would be hard-pressed to get any kind of decent laptop for $200 - 300 though, unless the only use for it is web browsing and e-mail.

    I'll choose Lenovo over HP especially it has a comfortable keyboard, and a good price. it could also good for gaming and for graphics.

    Hey, I wanted to add about Dell too. I read a lot of reviews lately about Dell and its performance. The next time I will buy a laptop, I will definitely considering this brand too aside from Lenovo.

    I am currently using Sony Vaio but if I am gonna choose between Lenovo vs HP. I will chose HP. I have HP netbook and I have it for two years now.

    Both of them have vast experience with Laptop production but I would suggest you to check out for the quality of support services provided by both of them, as you did not considered DELL for comparison, I would suggest you to go with Lenovo.
