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
  • DVD-Writer
  • 15.6" 1920 x 1080 ( Full HD )
  • 802.11ac
  • graphite black
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
  • (20DF0040US)
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.
