i5 processor, 8GB of ram, and an intel HD graphics card, can someone tell me what the point of having those specs are.

Personally I'd go for the thinkpad, due to it being lighter and more portable.


Why question it when it's free?

The question confuses me. What part of the specs listed do you see as pointless?
And yeah, I'd go with the thinkpad. Been a fan of Lenovo/IBMs hardware since the first gen thinkpads.

Yeah those specs seem pretty good for a work machine to me.
If I was using it I'd want at least 12gb of RAM though. I burn through 8 too quickly.

Yoga: lighter, convertible, better key feel

Elitebook: more powerful, easier to maintain, saner key layout, better trackpoint, matte screen

Personally, I'd go with the Elitebook.

Elitebook comes with an SSD.
If you're going to use one for work, I'd go with the one with the better performance, the Elitebook

What's more powerful? The specs are pretty much exactly the same from what I can see.

If you plan to do any gaming, go with the Elitebook.
