Alrighty ladies and gents, my refund from school this year was fairly hefty (2,000$ and some change), so I'll finally be upgrading my laptop to a new one. However, with all of the new tech floating around, and the newer brands seemingly popping up everywhere, Im at a bit of a loss.
Some time ago, my HP dv6 (specs below), decided to shit out on me.
2.26GHz Intel Core i3-350M processor
3MB L2 Cache
4GB DDR3 System Memory
Intel HD Graphics
Up to 1696MB
Right now, Im on a backup laptop (and have been for about a year or two) with the following specs:
~Please don't beat me, this little guy is downright shameful~
15.4 In Screen
AMD Athalon 64 Processor 3000+ (1.6 GHz)
512 MB of Ram
NVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go - 32.0 MB DDR SDRAM
That said, Im looking for:
Something that packs a nice, hefty punch with at *least* 750GB, but preferably a TB of space
Something that can run the newer games without burning holes in my legs if I play for more than 15 minutes or so.
Something *NOT* made by HP, as I've had nothing but bad experiences with their machines (heat-wise and dependability-wise).
So far, I've taken a look at the following brands/machines.ASUS G75 Series G750JW - Priced at 1,399$
Alienware (the newer line that just came out)
iBUYPOWER Gamer Valkyrie series
Lenovo Ideapad Series - Not sure about this one.
