    680 euro for that? Eww...

    Dell laptops have been cheap lately. Don't let fanboy noobs sway you from a Dell just because its dell, try to configure a laptop there and see if you like it.

    I wouldn't say it's so "eww" xD it's certainly not a bad price... Maybe not optimus, but not bad (I may not be a pro but I'm not a n00b [​IMG]). No fanboy swayed me from anything... there isn't such thing as a "computer brand fanboy" here in Spain xD so... gonna check the Dell configuring thing, thanks for the top there, Linkie guy [​IMG]

    this is the best I found so far there in Dell... http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products...=dhs&redirect=1
    Not bad, but I think I'd still stick with the acer... a little more pricey but also a better performance and higher HD capacity... what do you guys think? I really appreciate your freakness on PC field [​IMG]

    I ain't trading anything unless you consider a purchase as "trading money for goods". Dunno, if it should be, then so will the mods move it. Hm, if "nay", why?

    DKR? Dansk kronor? That's more or less like... 1/10 of an euro, isn't it? Or at least that's what it's like with SEK.
    Hey, but I think Linkie gave a good advice, he just didn't pay attention to the flag under my av. xD Seems like europe is doomed [​IMG]
    But hey I think actually we Spaniards get it cheaper than brits, since we have the same ammount in our own currency which has a lower value.

    They're talking about a laptop. I dont think you can build a laptop on your own.

    Hm, maybe you can if you "design" it on their website somehow? Never actually got into the laptop thing, I'm more of a desktop geek [​IMG]

    You can't really build it yourself, but you can customize it. And Dell has great monitors and notebooks. WUXGA screens even

    I've been comparing between the first ACER on my OP and a Dell laptop
    http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/topics/t...dhs1&l=es&s=dhs
    (then add this ESDHSONL-N1015215 code) and it gets more pricey with the dell for the same specs, so I'm probably going for the ACER... hmmm unless any of you has any suggestion?
    btw ZeWarriorReturns, I've been looking on the Spanish site for delloutlet and it's just same as Spanish site for dell... [​IMG]

    INTEL CORE2 DUO T5500, 1.66GHZ, 80G HD, 2X512MB DDR2, 15.5' WXGA, ATI X1700/512MB DVD-SM+DL, XP PRO, BAG+MOUSE

    You can get them for about 989.919 Euro. So i guess it might be out of your price range
