Hi,

    I'm looking for a laptop for music production and editing.. and occasional video editing.

    I have two options - Lenovo thinkpad e550 with kingston 240gb SSD (with i5) or Lenovo ideapad g710 (with i7).
    Some say that thinkpad is better, more resistant and better manufactured. And that for musicmaking the i5 is enough. That most of the work will do the external audio card and the SSD disc anyway...
    Others that I should rather go for the better operational system.

    And I have no clue about tech stuff. And now I have old old Toshiba, and I did everything on it, eventhough it took for ages, cause it is the slowest pc ever, but I cannot imagine what could be the difference for me between i5 and i7 etc...

    Thanks for any help.
