I really don't know how the RX Vega compares, but out of the MX250 and GTX 1050, the 1050 is the better graphics card. My only worry with the Lenovo is whether or not you can upgrade the SSD. 256GB is pretty small.

What do you plan on using the laptop for? Is mobility above gaming performance? That AMD model you listed should be smaller because of the smaller screen.

MX250 is balls. If you want to game on the laptop don't buy that one.

I wouldn't buy anything made by Lenovo due to security and other issues they are plagued with, so that only leaves one.



That is how you apparently swap the hard drive.

In future man have some patience. The thing is, until I read this thread I was about as clued up as you were I just spent 2 minutes digging around on Google and Youtube and hey presto, all answered.

With my MSI laptop I had to remove everything from the case as the M.2 slot is on the other side of the motherboard. Total PITA. It's a great laptop otherwise. Not as solid as my MBP, there's definitely some flex to it, but the performance has been solid and the screen is great.

The Ryzen laptop has 512gb which should be ample really.

If not an external USB 3 SSD will hold games etc.
