What if I've never had a computer before? A 500 dollar computer would be mindblowing.

That's like saying don't spend $600 on a desktop because a $1600 one is better. DUH.
performance is a moot point with computers now a days

a $1200 desktop PC will perform at 90% of what a $3500 one will

what you are paying for with the extra money is longevity, you will get the additional investment back over time as the higher end computer will have:

A) Higher quality internal components

B) Higher Quality transistors and circuitry

C) Performance which exceeds any current software/hardware requirements, therefor you are giving yourself a "buffer" to that point down the road where software comes out that utilizes the full ability of your PC

D) laptop specific - a higher quality panel

As i said you get what you pay for and if you pay for ****, you get ****, i dont care what brand,model, whatever your buying, it applies to everything, buy a **** computer this year, you'll be buying another **** computer 1.5 years from now.

There is a reason why service providers give way free "laptops" as a signing bonus to a new contract, because these laptops which SUPRISE SUPRISE, are around $500 arent worth -****-

all I'm saying is... if mommy and daddy didn't set you up for life and you had to work minimum wage jobs, you'd have a different opinion on this.

So in order to be able to afford somthing that is $1200 you need mommy and daddy to buy it for you?...

i've worked since i was 15, paid for all my schooling, and bought all my toys with my own money

just because your a lazy pathetic excuse for a life who cant do anything but flip burgers doesnt mean you still cant afford a nice laptop, Bestbuy has a thing called "financing" and even broke *** peeps such as yourself can get 0% interest over a year on said purchases.

Toys huh? Did you go out and buy your own one of these?

OP, I am in the same budget as you for a laptop for myself.

Except most high end parts will run hot, which hurts longevity more than anything. Slow and cool will outlast fast and hot for sure.

A) Higher quality internal components

B) Higher Quality transistors and circuitry

How is this different from A? Go into detail about the transistor quality for me please.

C) Performance which exceeds any current software/hardware requirements, therefor you are giving yourself a "buffer" to that point down the road where software comes out that utilizes the full ability of your PC

Except for web browsing, software isn't going anywhere. The buffer is nice for gaming, not so much for everyday tasks. My 5year old laptop can even handle Windows 7 and browses the internet just fine.

D) laptop specific - a higher quality panel

That sounds like a perfect thing for someone on a budget to worry about.

As i said you get what you pay for and if you pay for ****, you get ****, i dont care what brand,model, whatever your buying, it applies to everything, buy a **** computer this year, you'll be buying another **** computer 1.5 years from now.

Stop equating **** with cheap. Lower speeds and sizes DO NOT mean that the components are more prone to breaking.

There is a reason why service providers give way free "laptops" as a signing bonus to a new contract, because these laptops which SUPRISE SUPRISE, are around $500 arent worth -****-

hahahah... you're such a stupid ****. stop being so defensive about money, because there's other things to life.

pulling out the "burger flipper" line on the first little insult... get a life.

With technology prices going down, you can get a good laptop for $500. Yes it might not be good to someone standards but might be well enough for someone else standards.

Plus a majority of the users out there need a dual core, 320 gb, 2 gb ram and wifi. They will mostly use it for school work, music, movies and internet. Which with those specs, it's more then enough.

This solidifies your stupidity, thay are not giving you the laptop for free. They are pretty much forcing you to finance the laptop by being locked into a contract that lasts for a set period of time. It is called subsidizing you dumb****.

I would consider it more as an incentive than subsidizing as many service providers who have similar pricing and contracts do not offer free computers

that is, if you consider garbage an incentive.

there is no argument in saying that HDMI cables are more of a solid connection that component cables because they just aren't, components will never lose a connection by moving a component while hdmi can easilly pop out if you pull your ps3 away from the cable etc

maybe all your systems just ain't bumping as hard as mine

I guess the expensive, "quality" cables that Absolutt apparently likes to buy suck enough for him to think that the HDMI design is fundamentally flawed.
