What should I choose, Please help me decide

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Okay I need serious help...
I REALLY want this:


But i just found this:
KEEP IN MIND: I have a beast desktop that can play EVERYTHING EVER MADE maxed out like its a childs toy, so I still have something to game with, plus I dont know how much I'd game with the laptop, I already bought 8gb of GSKILL ram, and a seagate hybrid x 500 hdd, so those two things matter not to me, I go between work and school A LOT and I dont have a car, I ride the bus,( I'm still in high school) I am a professional photographer, and I love over powering things.

Timeline X:
Pros: perfect size, switchable graphics, good battery life, lightweight, aluminum finish, great for school work, decent gaming, travel.

Cons: dual core, low res screen 1366x768, no play/pause buttons via the function key, terrible speakers( not big deal use headphones or external speakers mostly) NOT IN STOCK( I think)

6436:
Pros: Higher res screen, two HDD bays(I use tons of space), three rams slots(I know I would put more in, for 12, I know this), better 3d card, upgradeable 3d card, tri core, AMD(I'm an AMD fanboy) IN STOCK

Cons: WAY TOO BIG, ugly finish, not as seek, terrible battery life, large, large, large,big, huge,massive... If this was in a 14 inch for factor= INSTANT SALE. but noooo

Thanks, Alex
Thanks, Alex

First off, your desktop cannot play everything ever made maxed out like a childs toy. It will run anything just fine, but some games nowhere near maxed. Now that that's out of the way though, I say just get the first one. Laptops are more about portability and if you already acknowledge you will continue to do your main gaming on your desktop there's no reason to go for the more powerful one. Also, the graphics are not upgradable idk where you got that from. Dedicated GPU's in laptops are soldered directly into the motherboards.
