Laptop for university - Opinions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, I am thinking about getting a laptop for university sometime soon and was wondering what you guys though of this. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS

It seems good for the price. I can't spend too much money (limit is around 1100 or so). I will not be gaming on this, I have my sig rig for that (if I even have time to game lol). Also, any other suggestions please add them in here! I appreciate it a lot!

*Also this is more of a personal question, but if I have a computer already, should I even bother with a laptop? (Say from personal experience or what not). I think it would be handy for class (no, I won't be one of those facebook surfers in class. I hate facebook ). I am going into computer science and can't wait!!!

My friend is also buying a laptop and we've done way to much research from asus to sony to dell to acer and that turned out to be the best one. Best of all i've seen that laptop in person and it's a solid lappy. Let me know what you think.

I actually just bought an ASUS M51SN-B1. Great laptop. has a 9500M GS in it so I can game as well . Creates a lot of heat from the graphics card so I am getting a cooling pad (only in games). Other than that it was an awesome laptop for under 1000 bucks (or around there).
