I'm looking at spending some cash on a new laptop to replace my old IdeaPad Y580. Looking at an Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop. I'm thinking the Core i5 might be plenty fast, but I might end up taking out the 256GB that's in there and put in my 480GB SSD drive, OR get an enclosure for my drive and hook it up externally for other purposes. Just not sure how well games would run off of an external drive like that. OR...just get the Core i7 one with 128GB msata+1TB and 16GB Ram. My Ideapad is a 5 year-old Core i7, with 16GB, and a 2GB 660M GTX. Thoughts? Primarily work, with some gaming here and there. Gave my "gaming rig" to my son for Christmas, and I miss playing games.
