Next Fall I will be going of to college to obtain a degree in mechanical engineering. For Christmas I am getting A Dell Inspiron 17r (5720).
The specs are:
3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM (6MB cache, up to 3.2Ghz)
Windows 8, 64-bit, English
17.3" High Definition+ (900p) LED Display with Truelife
8GB3 Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz
1TB 5400 RPM SATA Hard Drive
8X Tray Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)
Nvidia GeForce GT 630M 1GB
At the University I will be attending there is no required laptop for the major. So I was wondering if this laptop will suit my needs. I am assuming I will be doing some AutoCAD work, as well as some moderate gaming (mostly Blizzard games) on my personal time. This laptop is priced wonderfully at $900 and seems pretty solid.
