    Budget: Around USD 1600-1700
    Purpose: Every day general use and photo editing (no video editing)
    Prefer 2 in 1 form factor: No
    FHD or 4K: Screen color accuracy is more important .
    Gaming: NO

    I am considering these two laptops:
    Lenovo C940: 10th Gen i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Iris Graphics, 14inch 4K display - $1600 (with employee discount)

    Razer Blade Stealth 13: 10th Gen i7, 16GB RAM, 512TB SSD, GeForce GTX 1650 Max Q, 13 inch FHD display - $1700

    Did not select 4K screen for Razer because the price would go over my budget. I also considered Dell XPS 13 and HP Spectre X360. Had to eliminate HP due to their QC issues and their 4K screen banding issues. Dell is costing 1900 for similar specs which is beyond my budget.

    Both Lenovo C940 and Razer Blade Stealth 13 have awesome specs and are around the same price. I like Razer due to its smaller form factor, build quality, and the graphics card. I like Lenovo due to 4K screen and 1TB SSD.

    How good is Razer's FHD screen in terms of color accuracy and brightness? I know it cant match quality of a 4K screen but I am good as look as it has good color accuracy and decent brightness. Also, how critical is external graphics card for photo editing? Is it any more helpful than Intel Iris graphics?

    Which one would you pick?
