Okay fellow nerds, I am in the market for a new laptop. I will be using part of my tax returns so I have about a week before the funds are in order. But 1K is max budget. I am not a huge gamer but I do want to play the latest and greatest when i do play. So, I have not looked around extensively yet. But these two have caught my eye:
MSI E7235-295US Notebook PC - Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 2.0GHz, 4GB DDR2, 320GB HDD, DVDRW, 17" WXGA+, Windows 7 Home Premium, Black/Red at TigerDirect.com
Newegg.com - lenovo IdeaPad Y550P(324156U) NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD±R/RW NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M - Laptops / Notebooks
Thoughts? Advice? Alternatives?
