Upgrade desktop or get a new laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i just a $2000 scholarship from Dell, basically i got a $2000 gift certificate from them... So i have a desktop (signature) and i have a Sony Z3 (it has a i7 3612QM, 8 GB of ram, and 256 (RAID 0 128x2 SSD) and intel 4k graphics)

1 - So i can either buy anything from dell and resell it, and get around $1700 back and with that money upgrade the video card and monitors of my computers..

or

2- Get an Alienware 14 laptop, sell my laptop and get good SSD for it with the money.


So basically im currently playing League of Legends and WoW... My degree is Computer Engineering so i do alot of programming, and run few VMs, with testing environments (mostly linuxs VM(Virtual Machines))


Im aware i dont really need to upgrade anything but if just buy anything and dont spend the $1700 ill probably waste it in shoes and cloths.. so i rather spend it quick...


I take my laptop to school monday to friday, and use it all day, mostly programming...


Soooo what to do?

If you're going to be moving it around and stuff I'd rather go with a laptop tongue.gif

If you're looking to spend 1700 and get something powerful, I'd recommend the Sager NP7330 on xoticpc.com

The thing is a MONSTER. I just got mine and am extremely pleased with it in every regard.
