Don't want to have to deal with running out. LOL
The processor because of the cache from 3M to 4M and the .3GHz faster turbo mode at the same TDP...! I rather have the 1% faster one...I might not always see the difference but hey it is my money...
Thanks for the screen idea DNytAftr! +rep...
The potential to last extra years without bogging down is a plus I think. Also the fact that if you want to run this little laptop on a HDTV through HDMI out is a plus. I like the form factor, don't need to carry around a bulky 15-17" laptop...
Johnny you are really have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all...and stop trolling you have 8gb of ram on your m11x!!! I knew 8gb was alittle overkill but hey atleast I didn't get the 16gb option like a stupid noob.
The core i7 comes with the gt540m with 2gb vram. If I went i5 only get 1gb vram!!
IMO it is much better if you could negotiate to take off 4GB of RAM from that laptop and slash $150 off the price tag , if you need the extra memory just buy an aftermarket one like Hynix/Samsung/whatever 4GB kit which is usually less than $100.
1 more MB of cache probably won't make a difference unless under heavy loads but i guess you didn't pay much more for it so why not.
