Thinkpad 13 vs HP Envy 13-ad116TU

which one would you recommend?

primarily for work which requires running data analysis.
so RAM and processor speed are impt.

or would you recommend something else?

If you travel with the laptop eg to do site work or visit clients get the ThinkPad.

Otherwise both are decent options and it comes down to price tag, specs and aesthetics.

The ThinkPad series is engineered for reliability and hardiness. It's hardy enough to operate in extreme env like outer space, high mountains and deserts. Google ThinkPad torture tests for some extreme action

Bought envy 13 ad116 about $1261 from Qoo10, so far so good.

Come with 2 Years local warranty from HP

I think ThinkPad 13 probably more expensive and still using 7th gen intel processor. But for work, usually ppl will recommend ThinkPad or Dell Latitude

[Gain City] HP Envy 13-AD116TU Laptop (New Q3-2017) i5-8250U/512GB SSD/8GB DDR3 (2 Years Warranty)

My purchased:-

You may wait for the next Q10 $100-120 coupon event.
