Recommended Posts

Im needing a new laptop cause my Inspiron E1505 just isnt cutting it these days.I need one thats basicly a desktop replacement because of space and power consumption.


Heres what im looking at


Studio 15


Core i7 Technology for ultimate performance

Intel® Core™ i7-720QM Processor (1.6GHz, 6MB Cache, Turbo Boost)

Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium Edition SP1, 64-Bit

15.6” High Definition (720p) LED Display with TrueLife™ and Camera

8X Slot Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

250GB3 SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)

512MB4 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

I would like to stick with Dell because I have never had a problem with them (I know I have been lucky)

Plus I already have credit with them so...


What do you people think?

Dells are way overpriced IMO.


that and the i7 in the laptop is till too high for my tastes.




Id get that personally. I have an ASUS as does bruce and we both love ours to death.


That one has the best vid card you can get in a laptop i think, 6GB of ram, and a 17" screen... you wanted a desktop replacement might as well get the bigger screen...Goin to be plugged in most the time anyway.


Also, I am not 100% but mostly all of Asus gaming laptops have slots for TWO harddrives and will do raid 0. I have that on this very machine and it is fast! Just get another matching one, pop the bottom bit off slide it in and set up raid and reformat. Asus has a recovery disk that makes it pretty easy and CUSTOMIZABLE. Meaning you can take off junk. :)


Btw, I have Win 7 Pro x64bit and it is smooth as silk on my Asus lappy top.

I wish they offered a nvidia card equivalent but a 4570 should do me fine.


That ASUS looks to be kick a%%... got me thinking now.


I still want to go i7....


EDIT : The price on the one I posted was $1082.00 shipped
