Please look at these specs and tell me which laptop you'd choose?
1

I put a couple of laptops in my "basket" at hp.store with similar platforms but different processors and graphic options. Should I commit? I'll go another 100 dollars or so if anyone can talk me into it. Mostly amateur photo processing. I do no gaming. No video processing either. I'd like a 17.3 inch machine with the best screen I can get under 1000 dollars and the 17.3 inch ips screens on these HP envy seem to get mostly glowing reviews.

If you go to the store.hp links for these there are numerous options. I'll go to 1000 dollars if anyone can talk me into it. But given that I do no gaming or video processing I wonder if upgrades beyond what i've chosen below are of any real benefit.

Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH for any input here.
