I need help deciding

Postby Sisco22 » Tue Feb 17, 2009 1:44 am

Hey guys,
I need some help deciding on a new laptop. Basically i am looking at all the deals that are in the paper. I can't decide which one i want. I need a decent video card. I'm not crazy about the 16" or 15.6" screens b/c of the resolution 1366x768. I don't care for 17" laptops b/c the touchpad is off to the left and it makes it weird feeling. Can't decide on AMD or Intel. Can anyone help me narrow this down. I'm lost on what i want lol. I just sold my Acer 6920. So i don't want to go back with Acer. Any advice would be great!
Thanks!
Adam

yeah..tell me about it...it would make you feel like that face hahaha. seems like all the ones i've looked at today are either 15.6" or 14.1" i actually miss the 15.4" laptops. they are still out there..but the processors are sucking in them. i basically don't have a desktop anymore. i've been using my laptop, so this is like a desktop replacement.
