Unlike costello, I'm looking for a laptop with a 15.4" or 14.4" screen. 17" is too heavy of a laptop for me and anything smaller would be a pain to use. Budget? None really, grad gift. proc: core 2 duo @ 2.4 ghz ram: 2gb or more (I can upgrade my self, usually cheaper) hdd: +200gb gpu: something that can run last year's games. not planning on pc gaming much (note: definitely not crysis) I was thinking the macbook pro. Besides gaming (there's always bootcamp), osx and the macbook pro seems pretty awesome. Also thinking of lenovo's thinkpad/ideapad, alienware's m15x, or dell's xps m1530. There's an apple store in a nearby shopping center so the mbp get's an automatic point from me. Suggestions?
