It's time for a new one, the one I have now is an old HP running XP , so that will give you any idea of how old it is.
I found this at Best Buy while I was looking at the Zenbook , while nice , I'd rather have something a bit bigger.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+17.3 ... Id=6769449
I like the specs of this, Quad Core, 8GB Ram and a dedicated 2GB 660M.
Usages will mainly be work related , which basically means typing up leases, I would like to use it for gaming for when I take trips too.
There's also this one, however the 1366 x 768 is less than ideal along with no optical drivehttp://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+14%2 ... Id=7674066
This is the one I originally went to go check out, it seems to have a good balance of features with 1600 x 900 res.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Samsung+-+S ... Id=6774657
I'd like to buy this weekend due to Presidents Day sales.
I'm not against ordering online, just impatient , hence BB
Price isnt a big issue , but I'd like to cap around $1,400 and even then I really dont want to compromise at that price point.
