I'm looking for a laptop

Postby nietzsche on Fri Nov 16, 2012 8:33 pm

I'm thinking of buying a laptop, I need recommendations

What I'm looking for mostly is a decent system but this specs are a must:

full hd display 1080p 1920x1080 MATE
ssd drive more than 128gb desired
8gb ram
ivy bridge processor
a decent video card, enough to handle the linux's 3d stuff

any recommendations?

I could all that from a Sager, for about 1300 usd, but I know that looking you can get all that for 800usd if you know where to look.. specially dell outlet with coupons.

I would really appreaciate help in this!

Laptops are obsolete. Get a tablet.

I have a laptop. Every time I want to use it, I have to take it out of its case, dig out the DC rectifier from under the seat, plug it in, plug the AC adapter into the DC rectifier (funny how in order to get 9V DC I first have to convert 12V DC to 120V AC and then convert it back almost to the form it started in) wait 10 minutes for the thing to boot up, plug in the cellular adapter, wait another 10 minutes for signal acquisition, and then finally I'm online.

People with tablets turn them on and they're online. I'm so fucking jealous.

NO

Check out dell outlet with a coupon. You can get it that price, I actually got one deal like that around june, bought it but my bank rejected the charge and i did not receive and email from dell, it wasn't until 5 days later that checked the site too get a tracking # that I saw my card had been denied. Of course, the same lap wasn't available anymore.

It was not Mate tho, and maybe it wasn't ivy bridge either, but very close.

no way dude, dell doesn't have any kind of deal on those, even refurbs, because dell doesn't make anything in that range. no big box pc maker is going to have any ssd larger than 128, and at that size you're paying out your nose for it. not to mention that full 1080p screens on laptops these days are rare, they're almost all 1600x900 or whatever. sager for sure will have the rig with the specs you want, but i mean, typically any independent graphics card (saying a min 1GB) will bring the cost of a standard laptop up 150 bucks, so that means you're finding a laptop at 650 with everything else you want? no way

That was with a 20% off coupon, I've seen up to 35% off coupons. And that one had a TV tunner cards as well ;)

I was pretty pissed when they told me my card hadn't accepted the charge, and instead of calling the billing address number they called the shipping address number, which is a mailbox service and I couldn't get a similar laptop later.
