    How do you compare Y530 to Y520 in terms of build quality, cooling and audio?

      build quality – about the same
      cooling – better on the Y530 – good performance, but the i7 1050 Ti versions run hot
      speakers – about the same, as far as I can remember

    What should i go for fx505 or y530, does fx505 have a flimsy keyboard , screen . The speakers also sound tiny when compared to y530 . Does fx505 really feel better to use than y530?

    Would you recommend this, either the i5 or i7 version for photo and video editing? Color accuracy is not a huge deal for me, I'm just an "enthusiast" and looking for something reliable, fast enough to run Adobe Lightroom and Premiere. Fast rendering speed is not my main target, just fast editing process and fluid playback of FHD and 4K videos. I have not been able to find a good review in this matters since most people want to get this sort of laptops for gaming and good rendering quality. Could you please help me with some ideas? Is the i5 8300h processor enough, trying to add more RAM? Does the Ti video card would bring a noticeable improvement in the editing process?

      CPU performance is the most important aspect to consider for photo and video editing, and as you can see in the Performance section, this does very well in the Cinebench multi-loop test, which simulates a 100% load on all cores. You'd have to undervolt it to get the best performance, but that's simple.

      I'd also get at least 16 GB of RAM and if the budget allows, a sufficiently sized SSD

      You can find both reviews on the site. If they also get the same screens, I'd go for the FX505.

    should I go for the LEGION Y530 i7/1050 4g/8GB RAM/ 16GB OPTANE or the less expensive ASUS TUF FX505GE i7/1050 Ti/ 8GB?

    I need it for daily use of architecture and design software including Autodesk, Adobe and rendering programs such as 3D Max, also how important is a SSD? is the Legion Optane memory worth the $400 difference? I've read the reviews and they sure helped me to narrow down my options to these two, however I'm still unsure and I haven't found many other reviews about user experience
