Which M11X to get?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I literally just spent 30 minutes in front of the four M11X configuration and I can't decide which one to get.

So far it's between the i5 and the cheaper i7. Do you think I should get the i7 or the i5?

It will be my netbook for college , I'm planning on basic gaming ( L4D2 , Minecraft , Runescape , Fallout 3 ... )


Help me decide!

Thanks

i5. The 335m is such an entry level card, the i5 wont bottleneck you in games and i doubt you need the i7 anywhere else.
Also dell does pretty good deals on the i5 versions, the last deal that had was

Dell Alienware M11x Laptop: Intel Core i5 520UM 1.86GHz, 8GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, 11.6" 1366x768 WLED LCD w/ Webcam, 1GB GeForce GT 335M, Win 7 $660.52 + Free Shipping
So I would wait for it to go on sale again (usually happens every other week or so)

It's on "sale" right now ( -150$) .. The offers ends on my birthday so I need to buy right now.

Thanks , I will get the i5 version as you said.

I actually just bought the M11x with the su7300 cpu for 599, its a great little computer. Does everything I need it to and more. I noticed that it was taken off sale, so I agree, just wait a little and it will go back on sale. Unless you really want the i5, then by all means get that.
