    The two models are pretty much identical with some difference in the internal specs. The performance wise however there are some mixed reviews on each of the model.

    As you are into AutoCad and Matlab, you need a machine with RAM size. I have found that any machine with RAM above 4GB is good for CAD works. Both these models in such case fulfill that requirement.

    Fujitsu Lifebook A555

    This model has 15.6'' display screen. Which is enough for the CAD requirement. It has 8GB RAM which can definitely help with the performance. And the processor with Core i3-5th Generation model. It has 1TB HDD same with the model we are comparing. The machine costs 23,139.36 on Amazon India.

    Fujitsu Lifebook A514

    This model too has 15.6'' display screen. it is good enough for the CAD requirement. It has 8GB RAM which is what you need for CAD and MatLab. One important thing here is the process being 4th generation i3. So that definitely affects some small percent of performance. It has 500 GB HDD. The machine has 26,900 on Amazon India.

    As you can see
    1. A555 has Core i3-5th gen. and A514 has Core i3-4th gen. So there is performance lag in between the two.
    2. A555 has 1TB HDD storage and A514 has 500GB storage.
    3. Both the machine has 8GB RAM.
    4. Both devices have DOS installed.
    5. A555 has 23k price whereas A514 has 26K price.

    So you can see Fujitsu Lifebook A555 has a good option for you in terms of price and performance.

    Here we go with the comparison between the two laptops you have chosen to buy -

    Display
    Both the devices come with 15.6 inches screen with the same resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. and 100 ppi pixel density. Fujitsu Lifebook A555 has HD LED Backlit Anti Glare Display with Intel HD Graphics 5500 graphics processor while Fujitsu Lifebook A514 has Intel HD Graphics 4400 along with the same kind of display.

Fujitsu A514 is powered by Intel Core i3-4005U Processor (4th Generation). The RAM capacity is same at 8 GB with exapnsion capacity up to 16 GB. Fujitsu A555 has internal storage capacity of 1 TB, while the Fujitsu A514 comes with just 500 GB hard drive space.

    Other features
    Rest of the spec sheet remains the same across both the laptops. Both of them come with DVD writer with read/write speed of 8X. The A555 has High definition audio, whereas A514 does not have it. You will get one USB 2.0 and three USB 3.0 ports. Both of them feature essential ports like multi card slot, HDMI port, VGA port and Audio jacks.
    That should sum up the comparison between A555 and A514. As you can see from that feature by feature comparison, Fujitsu A555 appears to be a better option in comparison to A514. The A555 has better features than the competitor, yet is available at a lower price. I would advise you to go with Fujitsu Lifebook A555.
