Looking at those specs and knowing Sony, that must have cost and arm and a leg.

 

Anyway my terrible and outdated setup:

 

Sony Vaio FW21E

Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.27Ghz

Ati Mobility HD 3470

640GB HDD 5400rpm

4 Gig ram

LCD 1600x900

 

Cost me a fortune at the time, about 5 years ago.

It did indeed, but having had other premium quality laptops with lower specs, I can say it was worth it. The screen, lightness, batttery life, SSD speed at 900MB sequential read cannot be found on ANY laptop available right now under 5 pounds.

To be honest, I got something with similar specs (but much more average build of course) on a Black Friday sale for a tad above $900 after shipping.  Depends how much you value the weight and worksmanship and size, and so on—which I don't much, with my current usage.  It'll be quite different for each person.

 

Dell Inspiron 17R SE (7720)

Intel Core i7-3630QM

Nvidia GT 650M 2GB GDDR5 / Intel HD 4000 Graphics — Optimus

8GB 1600 Mhz RAM

1TB 5400 rpm HDD + 32GB mSATA cache

*immediately replaced storage with Intel 330 180GB SSD for $100 in a separate purchase; forget spinners for main drives*

17.3" 1920x1080 matte panel — contrast and colorspace coverage are surprisingly good for a laptop in this range, at least to casual eyeballing, but it's just a TN

 

 

The fan stays off when listening to music and most web browsing, at least with the way I have it set up.

Nope, I really am too lazy to keep a windows machine up to date, virus free, defrag etc these days. lol

post #1693 of 2053

You know, i have no idea how good the graphic card is, or the CPU lol.

 

Just googled, the GPU alone is like $450 ?! :D

post #1694 of 2053

Yeah both the GPU and CPU are top of the range stuff.Very nice/expensive choices!

post #1695 of 2053

Well, it is for my photography business so I budgeted for it and the whole thing came within budget so that was that ! lol

 

It is once in a 3 years purchase so I like to max it out because i need to last.  :)

 

I know the CPU is the top of the line but i am unsure of the GFX since with Apple it is rather limited with choice, i just upgraded it to what they had on offer...whatever it may be so there wasn't really any research need to be done really since it is not like I could pick and choose.
