Not sure OP will like this approach but with that kinda budget, spend it on something that's going to hold its value. If i was to spend 3k on a laptop i'd probably get a loaded Macbook Pro. Now before dismissing this idea, don't knock it until you've tried it. I've hated mac since Windows 95 when i learned to use a PC and started using my Gf's MAcbook Pro a year ago. Since then, i've built a custom Hackintosh but still need windows for certain programs for classwork so i've installed VM software for Windows and Linux partitions.

Ciffs: Don't waste your $$ on an Asus gaming laptop that is going to be work half of msrp in a year.

EDIT : Just seen you have a MBP, disregard^^ Then upgrade it!!!

im sure we all know how it is.
like opening up that fresh new part out of the box.
cant get enough.

Sorry for any apple fanboys but ive been staying away from apple. I love apple but theyre really losing their touch. When they started they took big risks, they innovated, they "thought different". Theyre getting too comfortable. Too rich. They just keep remaking the same thing because they know theyre making money. They dont want to take a small risk in case they might lose a little bit.

That doesn't float -- MacBook Pro is as good a Windows PC as any other brand, all you need is dual-boot with Boot Camp.

Don't get me wrong, I'm primarily a Windows user and have a ASUS G750 for my own machine, but I've had three MacBook Pros - and you cannot beat them for the hardware/engineering quality. You either like 'em or hate 'em, but if you pick technical nits with them, they're tough to beat.

yeah, id say buy an apple product for that kind of cash, and strictly for quality and support purposes. apple makes great products and will always repair\replace them if need be. But most laptops, when they die, are done for good. i would never shell out that kind of cash on a laptop unless it was from apple, and im not even a fan of there products. just my 2 cents

Never really implied that it was a be all end all, I've been looking for a MacBook just to learn the OS

What do you do about the keyboard when using a Macbook for Windows? There's missing keys right?
post #40 of 44
What missing keys are you referring to -- the "Windows" key perhaps? I don't miss it.
