Okay, these guys have this computer advertised: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E550 20DF
These first six specs are clearly understood...
8 GB RAM
500 GB HDD
15.6" 1920 x 1080 ( Full HD )
No Clue on these next two. Going to google. I think the Radeon is (or was once) a graphics card. I don't have any idea of how to put the first one into my brain, as a quantity, and then get that qualitative concept which flows out of the quantifiable item.
Core i7 5500U / 2.4 GHz <---The "core" of my confusion
AMD Radeon R7 M260
I think I know what these next two mean; and it makes me go "HUH ???"
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit / Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit downgrade
pre-installed: Windows 7
I think this last one is a part number
This is the kind of stuff where I don't really understand what stores are telling me when they advertise a notebook computer. I'm sitting here asking myself what I'm getting for what I'm paying, and no clue on how to compare that against another machine with equally convoluted specs.
They mean if you choose to use Windows 7 on it instead of 8.1 (or the newer 10). Depending on your needs, you may opt for one version or another. For example, in my regular business needs, I need a lot of software that I KNOW works on Win7, so if I need a business laptop, I'll choose that. On the other hand, if it's a personal computer, I'll probably choose the latest and greatest.
Windows version and the final notebook product item number are a few things that you would be using to find hardware or drivers related to your machine. Windows product is what you can change while purchasing the product. You can select from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 Pro, your choice.
If you find difficulty in learning something or understanding, always try to Google for it. Google has a good base of search results for you.

Something else to keep in mind are the data rates available in the Bluetooth standards. The rates are pretty low, so you could stream video but you'd have to do a bunch of compression and probably accept the fact that the video won't be all that good. Bluetooth works for audio because the data rates of compressed audio are very low.
I hope this is the correct forum for such questions..
Is an adapter (the wrapper, that is) really needed in order to put a nano SIM into a micro SIM slot? I tried without one and there doesn't seem any problems. So, my question is, if I continue like this, apart from trivial "non-detection of the SIM card case", what is the worst that could happen? Agreed, those adapters are so cheap to buy, but just wondering...
Just a small hint: You might want to watch out for idle cooler noise if you plan to use it in your office. I once bought one where the description said nothing about it and even in idle it was many times louder than my PC
