So, based on those spects, what would you choose? I've seen 50/50 ratings for HP, and Asus is well known for making quality laptops.
Why not toshiba, acer, msi, dell ?
Toshiba cannot compete spect-wise, Acer is pricy compared to Asus/HP, MSI is out of question, Dell cannot compete price & spect.
Thank you for your support!
Well its the difference between a Performance laptop from HP or a Multimedia laptop from ASUS, It depends on what you want to do and what you plan on doing with it.
1- Well when I look at Asus's performance series named "versatile performances" features Core 2 Duo, I can't stand that poor performance. Gaming series looks like i'm a 15 years old gamer, and i'd like a stylish/performance laptop. If Envy could be less expensive, i'd probably take the Envy 14 Beats Edition (Black), but it will not be until months.
2- My needs: Compile programs fast (I do Qt, Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc), do Photoshop fluently (no long wait for rendering or saving). I also use Sonar X1 for recording my guitar playing. Asus seems to have good speakers, HP has Beats. I have a Desktop i7 920 @4Ghz 6GB DDR3 at home, and I just CAN'T get less than those spects, else i'll feel like wasting my money.
Getting a laptop that will match a i7 920 @4Ghz 6GB DDR3 will cost yea big bucks.
TIP: A SSD does wonders to a laptop and really improves overall performance substantially. So buy one with a SSD or install a SSD after the fact.
What I'm trying to say Rodney is that i'd like much more an i7 than i5. The i7 mentionned above can get up to 3.1 Ghz, which is good for me! Which would you choose Rodney?
Hard choice, but I'd probably go with the ASUS N55SF-DH71 since it does everything the HP can and the screen can do 1920x1080. Although, I'd recommend replacing the HDD with a SSD. Use the HDD though, get a 2.5" external enclosure for it.
I saw the spects, I'd prefer 15-16 inch model, since it's more compact... They have great spects indeed, but it's 18,1"..
Thanks Rodney for the suggestion !
