Hello!
So im an engineering student so i use a lot of solidworks, autocad, and also do some programming.
Im looking for a laptop that will be great handling all that, and ive found some. the only problem is that i cant decide because of the processor.
The only one i found that has the best reviews with the i7 7700hq (less than 1200 dollars) is the lenovo yoga 720 15. only problem with it is a black bar issue that they seem to have.
But then there are a lot of lightweight laptops with great ssd and ram but with an 8550 u. (yoga 730 15)
Will i see the difference if i decide to go with the 8550u? Or should i stick to the 7700hq?
Thank you.
