I was hoping to find a laptop for around $700 that would be okay for some small 1080p video editing and would also be capable of playing something like MW2 (30 FPS at medium settings). I was thinking something like an i5 / GT240M but came across this and was wondering what your opinions are.
I just opted out of a laptop that had the i5 480M with a bluray and USB 3.0 for one with the i7 2630QM without the USB 3.0 and Bluray. It's just such a better CPU for the $900 price point I couldn't justify the bonus features of the 480M. Just get the Sandy Bridge!
