My System Specs


Laptop deals are shit right now. I would not go for a 16" laptop for school. You want MAXIMUM 15.4"... trust me. Unless your student is like 6'5" 240lbs and doesn't mind hauling around a big machine.

I will try to take a look around tonight and see if I can spot anything but a quick scan over BB, FS and Dell shows lame deals atm.

Anything you can game on with a mid-range GPU will cost at least $900 on sale. But up here you are more likely to pay $1000-$1200.

Models to look out for:

HP DV5 (Staples had some w/9600GT for $1100)
Toshiba A300 (same as above)
Asus N50
"this is not troll. this is real deal!" - hohohee

See the drop down!

Laptop: Dell XPS M1530 \\ T7500 2.2GHz \\ 3GB 667 \\ 6 Cell \\ 8600M GT \\ 200GB 7.2K \\ WSXGA+ \\ Bluetooth/Wireless \\ MS Blue Track Mini \\ Vista Ult. (RED)
