I was looking into buying this laptop but someone snagged it before me, I'm interested if anyone has something like this that is not used but rather factory refurbished. (No ebay postings)
I want to have one picked out and ready to be bought around april 14 (my birthday) stepping up from a D620 w/ 2gb ram and nvidia NVS 110m is plainly slow. I've got a 1440 x 900 display in it that makes it bearable.
Basically it's this I'm selling the D620 and with some extra cash hoping to buy a laptop that will let me game from a mobile perspective (think smaller screen) while retaining the Intel 2000 GPU for when I need to retain battery life. With that in mind the faster I can find the right laptop the faster I can sell the dell.
Keep an eye out for good deals during Easter sales events.
And also keep an eye out for slightly better spec'd models in the refurb sections at NewEgg and TigerDirect.
Switching from i5-4xx to i5-24xx model would get you better battery life.
GeForce GT 540M or Radeon HD 6650M would equal the Mobility HD 5730
