Looking to get back into windows after using this old macbook. I'm mostly goign to use it for browsing the internet, and editing 1080pHD videos and pictures in raw format from my DSLR.

would this laptop be able to handle that? if you have any other suggestions on what other laptop I should get that are in the similar price range, please post them up.

There's also a 15.6 inch screen version of ^^^^^that one and they have the same specs and price. Should I go with the 15.6 screen or 14 inch screen version?

Thanks OC.

Eh...I would not go for that. Find at least an i5 since you will be dealing with 1080p and RAWs. Easily able to find in that price range. Look at ASUS. They are my favorite brand. If you want any gaming options This guy will play anything today.

I get a Red Hat enterprise test page when i go that link.

And yea I might go for the 15r. Any difference between that and then 14r besides screen size? Usually the bigger one is cheaper but they are the same price on amazon.

I've narrowed it down to these 2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230132 or http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-i15RN-3647BK-15-Inch-Diamond/dp/B006LX2K44/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1327470036&sr=8-8

The Dell has the newer i5 processor, but it doesn't have a dedicated gpu like the Asus does and I'm not sure if the ram on the Asus is 1333mhz like the Dell.

The only difference between the processors is 100MHz, otherwise they are the same chip. I would get the Asus, the dedicated GT540M is worth the extra $40 or so over no dedicated GPU at all. The Asus also has a bigger HDD.

Oh, and the Asus more than likely also has 1333MHz ram.

Yea I'm going to get the asus even though it's a bit over my budget. I know asus doesn't provie a restore disk, do they at least have a recovery partition on the harddrive?

Also, how would the Asus laptop with the core i5 2430m with the gt540m 6gb of ram compare to my old gaming desktop pc which has a q6600 at 3.2ghz gtx285 and 4gb of ram?
