Hi, I really need help from some Techspot professionals here. I would like to purchase a new laptop and I don't want to get something that will be useless in a couple years. I only have a few requirements of my own: - I want the computer to run fluidly. (You know, not a slow computer) - I would really like to be able to play games. The better the laptop plays games, the better I'll like it. (I'll be practical about it, I know a laptop won't run Crysis on High ) I also need it to work well with movie-making software like Adobe Premiere Pro CS-whatever. - Lastly, I really want to be sure that I'm buying the best laptop for my price range. I don't want to pop onto Newegg the morning after I purchase it and find a better one for the same price. -Oh, and build quality, but I'm not sure anyone will be able to tell unless they have one themselves. I have found 3 very interesting possibilities... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220340 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834147786 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220395 I really like the specs on all of these laptops. They are all about the same price, which is reasonable. But I am unsure which one to get. The first one, the Cheaper ASUS has great features like the rest of them, but also has a lot of positive reviews, and is a pretty good bet that I will be satisfied. The second laptop, the HP, has bigger hard drive, looks better, better resolution, has Lightscribe, and has Vista 64-bit (I will get to that in a sec). It also has a Nvidia 9600 "GT", which I assume is better than a "GS" like the cheaper ASUS has. Unfortunately, it doesn't have enough reviews to ensure a satisfactory purchase, and is supposedly "hotter" when gaming. It is also about $50 more expensive. The third laptop is like the other ASUS with the exception of a better video card, much nicer layout and look, larger hard drive, and better resolution. But it is $100 more expensive and has only a few reviews as well. It also has 32-bit Vista. A concern of mine is the 32/64 bit Vista dilemma. I would prefer 64-bit and would NOT enjoy buying the OS again to upgrade. Both ASUS laptops have 32-bit Vista OS'. The HP has 64-bit. Supposedly you only get to use 3 of the 4 GB of RAM with 32-bit. So that is a problem. Which laptop should I get? Are there any better ones out there I may have missed? Help would be GREATLY appreciated.
