Everyone seems to like the MSI models, they must have a good reputation. Do you think there is a big difference between a i5 and a i7 core? Also is there a time in the year when things start to become cheaper because of new stuff?

Prices for the items today become cheaper when a newer model comes out.... you usually have to wait a good month.

Stock market also contributes to prices.... and well that doesn't look so good
