Laptop for Music Production

Hi guys...
I want to buy a new laptop for music production. I have to choose between lenovo y50 and asus rog g551 jk.

The y50 comes with ssd but the g551 does not. Anyway I planning to buy a 128 gb ssd. So I would either replace the 8 gb ssd in lenovo or I would replace the hdd in asus and use it as external hard disk.

I also read somewhere that y50 has heating issues. I want to know performance wise which one is best.

So which should I buy y50 or g551 jk ?

I've been going through this gamut the last while. Depends what you want to do with it - I eventually settled on building a desktop, because you can get a great deal more for a great deal less.

Are you set on a laptop? You'll either compromise performance and quality or you'll pay more.

Honestly you're pretty much going to get similar performance out of which ever one you choose since their specs are almost near identical, although the Lenovo will indeed get warmer than the Asus will. So if temperatures is important to you, that's your best bet. The upgradability is also about the same with both having two hard drive compartments but before you order check out a review on the Asus: and one on the Lenovo: ... Also I personally prefer ordering from sites such as so you can configure to your specific needs, hopefully this was helpful.
