Big Thanks

Well I want to thank you all so so so so much for your very helpful advice. I ended up getting an open box version with a 3 year PSP for a grand total of 1380$. A humongous thanks to Krydos and everyone else for your very helpful comments :smileyhappy:

I am very grateful.

Indeed.  Now if you think you might want to get into Sims 3 and other new games (and have an enjoyable experience), the HDX is the way to go, but if you intend to stay with the older games, the integrated chipsets can handle them.  It all depends on what you want.


As to school, I'm working on my PhD, so for a lot of school related purposes, the HDX is overkill, but it's nice having the 9600M GT for PhotoShop, etc.  I'm looking forward to the day when I'm done and I can really start experimenting with it and even start playing with 3D.  But when it comes to basic school purposes, any laptop will do.  If you're running any statistical packages, look for something with a decent processor.  Otherwise anything will work.



EDIT:  Oops, that post took me way to long to make :smileytongue:.  Congrats on your purchase and I'm sure you'll really enjoy it!
