My current laptop is going by the wayside slowly but surely, and so i'll be looking to find some decent prices this fall with all the christmas sales. I'll list what's most important first, then some I had in mind. any advice is helpful! i've been scouring the web.
14"-15.6" screen size at 1080p or higher resolution
i7 at 2.3ghz or higher, preferably 4core
8gb of ram but 12 would be great
not bulky or flashy, and hopefully a multi-gesture touchpad
SSD drive (Or at least room for one - the optical drive)
all the other basics.
Originally I was going to buy another mac (hate em if you want) but I'm hoping to find a PC in the same category.
powerful, thin, well made, aesthetically pleasing.
I had a vizio cn15-a2 in mind, but they're all sold out and i don't want my "liking the look of it" to sway me into a bad deal if there's a better ASUS out there or something for that price. $1500 is my budget, but obviously lower is better if it's comparable.
I will use it for movies and some gaming, think wow-leve lon medium graphics.
