    Looks like a pretty good value laptop... if this is the budget you're stuck with, it's hard to beat. The only thing I'd mention to be aware of is that it's kind of big and bulky and power-hungry (short battery life) compared to a lot of laptops today. Also, it sucks that it doesn't have more SSD options... I wouldn't be happy with what they've got, but if you're getting this model, I'd encourage getting it with the biggest SSD hybrid they offer - looks like 24GB.

    This one got 256 GB SSD, which is what my teacher recommended.

    I know that the batteri time is very short, but that's just one of the compromises that i have to accept in order to get the power that i need, within my budget

    Oh good! I didn't see that as an option in their configurations.

    I'm looking for a laptop for Revit works. I'm thinking about Lenovo Y510p but with single GPU.
    The price seems attractive Ģ580 (I'm uk based). This is around my budget. Is it good choice? I can spend maybe 100 more if is worth to get some better laptop. Could you help please?

    Thanks

    Hi Bekon - welcome to RFO!

    Those are decent enough specs for a lower to mid-range Revit laptop. The CPU is mid-range and the GPU should be fine. Hopefully the RAM is upgradeable if you eventually need more than 8GB. Personally I would not buy a computer without a dedicated SSD.

    If that's your budget, I don't know that I could suggest better. However, you might take a look at "Clevo" resellers in the UK and see if that's worth checking out.
