I am thinking of buying a laptop for college with the following specs
3rd Gen i7 quad-core @ 3.2GHz w/ turbo boost
16GB DDR3 RAM
Radeon HD 7670M
5400RPM 1TB HDD
The desktop system i'm using right now is pretty outdated, with a 1.6Ghz Pentium dual-core (oc'd to 2.6), 3GB DDR2, a GeForce 9500GT, and a 7200RPM hard drive. I'm wanting this laptop both to be a desktop replacement and an on-the-go laptop i can use in class. My only concern is, i've never worked with a sub-7200rpm drive before, and i'm concerned about how it would affect the massive performance boost i'm expecting. I don't have the money for an SSD of the size i need right now, so any general thoughts you all could offer me would be greatly appreciated.
