I'd say that'd give about a range of 3-5 hours depending on usage(eg. 3 hours Benchmarking Crysis while in class.).


The price difference isn't that far of a difference($1500 15" refurb) and neither are the specs:


Same cpu/mem
Bigger monitor
5 fps differnence in gpu


Especially since this laptop is a huge honkin desktop replacement almost twice as thick (1.79" (h)) and 3 extra pounds

Let's say I use Photoshop for work, my budget is $1000. Do I get the HP with a 17" screen and 8GB of ram or the MacBook with a 13" screen and 2GB of ram? Photoshop likes ram and a larger screen is easier to work with, so I'd get the HP.

Now if my budget was $2000, then sure, I can afford a MacBook Pro with 8GB of ram. But why? There's no need, a PC will do the job just as well.
Why HP when you can get Sager?

I was looking at the U$879 one, which is cheaper with similar specs and about the same weight. Main issue with it, is it looks butt ugly IMO. I had my eyes on a 15" refurb, which like you said isn't that much of a price difference from the 17" Sager.

I dont believe it for a second no matter how hard you try ascetically pleasing and intuitive interfaces are merely opinionated trends some think they are good some bad, some prefer that style and some dont. You cant argue cold hard specs and functionality with gimmicks and eye candy. Either apple will realize this or hopefully more importantly consumers will.

It's like buying a branded handbag when you can have a sturdy sack.

I was sayin more that the visuals are just preference the sack may be as equally good looking as the handbag or may not but you cannot deny the sack is tougher and will carry more ect.
