Okay, so I'm going to be a freshman in college. My major will be aerospace engineering. I am looking at a laptop that can run design programs, render animations, play video games, and all other things that most college students will do. Yes, I am aware that I'm asking for alot, but I have narrowed my choices down to two. They are at:
Neither of these two laptops are particularly good options, because they have poor displays.
15.6" 1366x768 displays and 17.3" 1600x900 dispalys make things onscreen large, and tend to have very poor image quality due to low contrast. I recommend against buying laptops that have this type of display to those who have a budget that allows them to get a laptop that has a better display and still suits their needs, and who don't require larger text for eyesight-related reasons.
Consider instead the Sager NP9130 for much better GPU performance, and a much better display.
