I have an older Sony from 2009 that surfs, plays netflix and runs Office fine so your models are quite a step up. I see you avoided the smaller SSD so I'd skip QHD and go with a 1080 display.
I have a 13 inch at 768 and for me that works.
Hey guys, I need to buy a new laptop for college stuff and I am debating which to get, I only offered those 3 because other than them, there is only asus which offers basically the same laptop, without the touch for the same price.
Here is a summery for the specs of the models I am looking at:
QHD+ 13.3 " display, either the newer model with 256 PCIE SSD, 540 intel GPU with 8GB of ram, upgradable to 16, and an I5 6260U
Or the older model with 520 intel hd, normal 256 ssd, I7 6500U and 8GB soldered.
FHD 14" display, I7\I5 and 256\512 ssd with the new 940MX and 8 GB of ddr4 ram
(I am still not sure which model I will pick as I can afford any considering it is cheaper than the yoga 900)
I like that the Yoga 710 has a bigger display, though I am not sure how noticeable it will be considering it's 0.7" inches, also it has a much lower resolution.
I don't plan on gaming or doing any heavy work on it other than surfing, watching movies and studying so I am not sure where the 940MX and drr4 will come into play.
The yoga 900 brings ddr3 and intel graphics but a better screen, a PCIE SSD and an updated I5.
My main debates are having a PCIE SSD and whether I should go for a higher res screen or a 14" screen with a little bit more juice, also the 900 has more usb ports and a usb C which is a nice plus.
I would love to hear your opinions, thanks!(BTW, the price difference for me is about 250$ when considering the I5 variants)
