thoughts about new laptop

Recommended Posts

eccofresh    6

hey, its time to get a new laptop and would like to hear some comments on my decision. Basically the device will stay at home for 80% of the time so portability is nice but I don't really consider an Ultrabook because of poor graphics card.

A core i7 is a must aswell as at least 6GB Ram plus an SSD. Price should be around 1000?

The best I came up with is the Lenovo Ideapad Y580, it features:

  • 15,6? Full-HD-Display @ 1920 x 1080, glare :-(
  • Intel? Core? i7-3630QM Prozessor 2.40 GHz with Intel? Turbo Boost -> 3.40 GHz
  • Nvidia Geforce GTX 660M, 2048 MB VRAM, Intel HD Grafik 4000
  • 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz Ram
  • 1000 GB HD, 5.400 U/Min
  • DVD Super Multi Brenner (DVD DL?RW/CD?RW)
  • WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, GBit-LAN, Bluetooth 4.0, WiDi
  • HDMI, USB 3.0
  • HD Webcam

I would exchange the hard drive with a Samsung 840 Pro (128GB). Together its just under a thousand ??.

Is there any system that can compete with this price?

Y580 is a great one.

HP' DV7 series is great, but I couldn't find one with a SSD

Samsung Series 9 is expensive

looked into the dv7 but its 17" :-( i have a 24" monitor @ my desk and the 17" is too big for transportation imo.

i just found the Lenovo Y400 @ the american lenovo site and they have a pretty sweet deal at the moment. gona check out how much tax i would have to pay if i import it :)
