i know that HP seams nice, have quad core, maybe better graphic and bigger hdd... but id opted for lenovo...
why?
in past i had bad experience with HPs, especially with tx2...
also, its amd cpu in it.. which i dont like, didnt say you might not..
and hp pavilions are suitable for overheating, and be able for graphic card to die (for older models dvxxxx)

GPU on HP

as for lenovo, i like cpu, since my girlfriends laptop has it...
only minus comparing to HP is hdd.. but would u need more than 320 on laptop... i have 160 on mine and not even half is full

GPU on Lenovo
