Lolol, for those that remember my thread on my laptop choice, well I think I've made my decision. I'm not going with a MBP because after comparing the specs between a 17" MBP and 17" PC, I could have an extra $1,600 to spend on my car, or a new TV that I want
My choices are either the HP Pavilion - 17.3" - i7 - 6GB memory - 750GB HD - BluRay - much more for $1,000, or the Toshiba Satellite - 17.3" - i7 - 6GB memory - 750GB HD for $830. I'm going to a couple stores tonight to look at them both/order which one I choose.
Both of these will be plenty of computer, plenty big (I took what you guys said about not needing to carry it to class and back as often as you'd think and decided to just sacrifice $100 or so and get the bigger laptop) and leave me with a lot of spending money afterward.
Now, with this money, I'm going to put some away for my car, some away for booze and some is going toward a new TV. I'm think a 26" will be perfect for a dorm room, but might want to bump it up to 32". I will be using it for TV and xBox and, when I go home for breaks/summer I will have a new TV for my room (which is what I really want).
Thoughts on a good
TV between 26"-32"? Let's keep this one sort of civil. As much as it looked like I wasn't taking your suggestions, I was. I wasn't very serious about getting an Alienware...
