Comparing the $600 MSI S6000-017US that comes with i5, 4mb ddr3, basic wireless, 15.6", 500gb, integrated graphics, and I think only a 4 cell battery?
A refurbished Dell STudio 15 i3, with smaller harddrive 320, same ram, more advanced wireless Centrino 6200, a 9 cell battery,
Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module
So, the MSI:
likely only 4 cell battery
only an i3 and is refurbished
but better battery
better wireless card
has built-in bluetooth
Now, I need bluetooth since will be using it a lot at home with microsoft wave keyboard.
Don't really need larger harddrive
I guess having the centrino 6200 card can have some advantages for connection?
Both are $600.
What do you think? All comments greatly appreciated.
