Hello, I am currently looking for a laptop to last me through my 4 years of engineering at university. I am looking at the clevo p150em and was wondering what specs you guys would recommend.
I need something to help me multi task on the internet (research) while also being able to run all my graphics rendering and algorithms associated with my program. I would like it to be able to play games as well but top settings are not a priority, my priority is speed of the laptop.
I am looking at:
INTEL Core™ i7-3720QM Quad-Core 2.6 - 3.6GHz TB, HD Graphics 4000, 6MB L3 Cache, 22nm, 45W NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 675M 2GB GDDR5 Mobile Graphics Card for P150EM DDR3 16GB (4 x 4GB) PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz SDRAM SODIMM (w/ Core-i7 Processor Only) HDD 750GB, 7200-RPM, 16MB cache, 2.5-Inch, SATA 3 Gb/s CLEVO Dual Layer Super-Multi DVD±RW Optical Drive NETWORK Built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN Card WIRELESS Wireless 802.11b/g/n LAN Card and Bluetooth Module MICROSOFT Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition
any suggestions on how to optimize this laptop for speed would be appreciated. I also would like to have a ssd ran as my OS drive but i would like to keep the laptop under $2000, which includes $120 shipping.

no i am going to get it built by either avadirect, or xoticpc unless you recommend any other places. the problem is i am a canadian resident and some laptop builders do not ship to canada
you have to tell them to install the OS on the SDD, otherwise they will install windows on the HDD unless you tell them not to install windows...
Your best bet would be to get a laptop with a second HDD bay, and no OS (if that is an option) reinstalling the OEM Windows onto an SSD maybe a hassle; so getting your own copy of windows and your own SSD would be easier.
