    Hey guys it's been hard for me to choose between which of these I should get. My budget is $1000 and I'm leaning towards the Asus primarily becuase of the NVIDIA Graphics (I was told it had Quad Core processors by a Fry's Employee but I can't find it in the specs?). Problem is that the Y40 has an 8GB SSD.[​IMG]I have to make my decision today so my question is:

    Is it worth paying an extra $200 for the the graphics (And Quad Core Processors possibly?) Here are the specs for both laptops.

    I haven't been able to find many reviews on the ASUS but it looks quite good so I was hoping to get some advice from you guys.
    A hasty reply would be appreciated thank you![​IMG]

    For a start... the Lenovo 8Gb is NOT a standalone Disk... it is part of the
    Hybrid 500GB 5400 RPM+8GB SSHD...
    It is a way of SPEEDING up that 500 Gb Hard drive - almost like having an 8Gb SUPERFAST chunk of RAM in which the programs are running...

    Personally, given THAT choice in an Hard Drive - THAT is the one I WOULD GO FOR...
