  1. Lenovo ThinkPad (T-Series) are really good.
  2. Budget ? Size ?

    I have bought a bunch of these ....

    http://www.lpc-digital.com/sager-np9150.html

    15.6” Full HD 16:9 LED-Backlit Super Clear Gloss type (or Matte for + $30)
    GTX 670MX 3GB GDDR5 Memory (675 MX for + $100)
    i7-3630QM Processor
    Buy OS on campus ... typically $10 - $25
    8GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz - 2 X 4GB (16 GB for + $70)
    750GB 7200rpm SATA 300 Hard Drive (750 GB Momentus Hybrid SSD / HD for + $90)
    8X DVD±R/RW/4X +DL Super-Multi Drive (BR Player for + $55)
    Integrated 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN + Bluetooth
    8 cells smart Lithium-Ion battery pack 76.96Wh
    Integrated Fingerprint Reader
    Free Shipping

    That is $1,269 in options. Add $81 in options and ya get an extra $50 iscount. Of all the above, I'd recommend the Moments strongest, I have one model; with an SSD + HD and another w/ the Moments and unless ya use a benchmark, the performance is indistinguishable. That total would be $1,309

    Hi, can you explain in what aspects is it good? Because I feel its overpriced specs wise. I just need decent build quality and wouldnt want to pay more for" ultrabook" or" bussiness" functions.

    How does this compare to the other models at the site? and is this brand reliable?
  9. I just got an Ideapad Y500 with Dual GT 750m, 16 SSD 500 HD from Lenovo, good deal I thought $1150.

    They have other models with a single GT750m if you want to save $$, they are all on sale now.
