New to this community. I am looking to buy a laptop for trading stocks. I will not be using it for gaming or media. I have been looking at the
i7-720qm and i7-820qm chips and which chip is best. I am not sure if these chips are more than what I need. I plan on 8gb of RAM and a 256gb SSD. Thanks for any help that you all can provide.

As I said in the other thread, this would be overkill and a waste of money. I agree that the internet connection is the most important for day trading. I personally can't see why an SSD would even be necessary. Trading online just does not depend on the speed of your computer that much.
