I'll be going to college soon, and will need to be getting a laptop. I wanted to get a Mac, but I need one that's compatible for gaming. I've been looking at the Toshiba Qosmio F55-Q504 ($1,400). Here's some of the specs:
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor P7350
4GB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz SDRAM
320GB HDD (5400rpm) (lol, I would never need that much)
DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash™ drive
Intel® Wi-Fi Link 5100AGN (802.11a/g/n)
Bluetooth® version 2.1 plus Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)
512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 9700M GTS*
harman/kardon® speakers with Subwoofer
REGZA LINK™ (HDMI-CEC) for 1080p support
Looks pretty good. Much better compared to the Dell XPS. Anybody else have a laptop they like? I don't want to spend more than $1,500.
Edit: The downside is it weighs 8.5 pounds, lol.
