i'm living in Toronto, Ontario and i am in desperate need of a laptop mainly for video/photo editing, gaming, and audio editing. additionally, i want something that'll have some last for a while 'til i can put some real cash together to follow the herd and buy a macbook pro. i'm an independent film and theater director/writer/actor who is more comfortable with PC than mac. though mac is industry standard with final cut pro. i've been able to effectively do everything i need with adobe premiere and audition.
i need to know if this is a good bargain, it looks really good but i'm of course concerned about the processor. i'm actually going into the store to check it out on friday and was wondering what type of motherboard i should be avoiding with this configuration. i mean, this deal seems too good to be true and i'm wondering if there are some lesser parts that i'm just not considering (outside of the motherboard) before going in. is the ram decent? is LG reputable with the laptops/pcs? i've always rocked crappy pc after crappy pc my whole life. now i need something i can make films, music, and play stuff like HL2 with (in my spare time)
