Honestly with the Windows tablets as capable as they are, a laptop seems kind pointless to me.

That's what my actual pc is for though.

I mean, if portability is that big of an issue for you, then okay. But the only thing I would ever really do with it is write papers and browse the web...and occasionally maybe play some emulators. So I dunno, for me I'll probably never buy an actual laptop.
post #714 of 1192
Being honest, as much as I love my mac i would trade this off for an ipad any time soon. I use my laptop for school and outdoors only, ipad would be more convenient but sometimes its hard to carry the desktop and ipad isnt enough :/

Its best to have all three if you can biggrin.gif

Well I'd like the laptop to be able to fold on it's off time, I can't really fold on my Mac because it'll pull around 2K PPD and get my laptop ridiculously hot no matter what fans I keep on it. It's just the nature of the beast I guess tongue.gif as well I use rendering stuff on laptops, so the ability to easily and smoothly use Sketchup and maybe Indigo (if I get it) in the future could also be something I need to keep track of. There's a lot I want in a laptop and so few that fit the requirements- which sucks... I've mainly been looking into the higher end of the Asus Zenbook series, and some Samsung and Lenovo ultrabooks as well. Gigabyte also seems to have a very nice offering which can game as well biggrin.gif The (Gigabyte) P35K looks particularly appealing to me: i7-4700HQ, GeForce GTX 765M, and a variety of storage systems- not too thick or large of a laptop, and a nice 1080P screen.

Thoughts gentlemen? Of course I'd download some application to get a start button feature back on W8 redface.gif

That Gigabyte actually looks pretty sweet. That's a pretty well rounded machine, and I'm a big fan of Gigabyte so I'd trust it to last.
post #717 of 1192
Thread Starter 
One of the reasons why I'm really interested in the Gigabyte, is that their boards have a remarkably low RMA/ failure rate. There was an article posted on here a little while back about it, and that's what got me thinking "hey, maybe a Gigabyte laptop.."- plus this one is pretty modular. Has a built in HDMI, a (hopefully working) card reader, and I could get an optional blue ray burner. I just want a laptop that'll work compared to my Mac tongue.gif

Poking around more, here's what I've narrowed it down to:
  • Gigabyte P35K- Anywhere from $1,400-$1,600
  • Razer Blade (Tacky, I know)- $2,000+ for the good ones with decent storage capacity
  • MSI GE40 2OC-218US- $1,400

From what I understand, the MSI laptops have phenomenal quality. Have you guys heard anything about the Razer ones though? I mean they're gaudy as hell and are kind of immature looking, but the spec sheet is amazing for the dimensions and weight of the laptop. It's really tempting me to get the 128GB and swap it to a better MSATA SSD wink.gif it is the most expensive though, which sucks. The base model is $1800, and compared to the P35K and GE40- it sucks hard.

Thoughts gentlemen? biggrin.gif

Dude i'll be honest, if for any reason i wanted a performance (crapdows too) i would simply go and buy the razer blade...
Gigabyte is new to this laptop business; lots of ultrabook making companies failed because they were "new" back then. Not anymore, but you get my point.
As for MSI, i simply hate MSI's everything ever since, they always look somehow cheap and crappy.

So yeah unless you overcome your hate towards OSX i would say razer blade or the proposed digital storm's thin laptop.

I don't hate OSX, I hate the proprietary hardware and limited upgrade capabilities compared to some other computers tongue.gif but if there's one thing I love about Macs more than any other computer (laptops specifically), is the looks. The Razer is the closest to that, and it's got a pretty good spec sheet.

Gentlemen I believe I had made my choice biggrin.gif now, do I get the cheapest 128GB and switch out the drive for a higher capacity one, or suck it up and pay the extra for the 512GB model?

Yeah mate great choice biggrin.gif
Just get whatever suits your needs; i'm fine with my 120GB SSD on the mac since its my secondary computer.
It still has 20GB of my music (my desktop has like 22-23, need to update), all my steam games for OSX and quite a bit of pictures and it seems to be enough.

Also how much is the difference? I'm lazy to look it up biggrin.gif
