Well my Asus K55N has been kickass, but sucks with some of my classes for VB, CCNA, etc. I want more screen resolution so I can utilize it better for my classes primarily. With that, I do some primarily RTS gaming on my current laptop which has done an excellent job overall. But 1300x700 resolution just doesn't cut it. Budget: $700 MAX Solution Found, see below or skip straight to it here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/700-budget-1080p-laptop.198673/#post-3078908 What I need: 1080p 4+gb RAM some dedicated GPU power for gaming (AMD or NV fine), NO SLI or CF 500+GB HDD or SHDD 4+hr Battery Life Fits in my Condor Urban Go pack Would prefer: Matte screen Haswell-based using NV Optimus for switching (seems to be the most effective all-around combo fwir) 15.6" Screen, may consider 17" Full keyboard w/numpad NV GT750M or 8850M or similar mid-range Fits in my Condor Urban Go pack's 16" laptop pocket (A 17" lappy would need to go in the main compartment with my other gear, books, etc.) Backlit Keyboard New/Refurb Warranty I have been in contact with Junky at Crazylaptopjunky.com, found some deals here and there...most push beyond my meager budget. I've missed quite a few deals...I'm hoping to snag something in the coming week or two as my school load is going to increase greatly this week in classes I could really use the extra resolution with. So any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to look!
