    Force unleashed 2 on PC is a nice idea :)






    I have my eye on an Hp Envy 13 for college for £450 should i get it?
    it looks epic man, 10-12hr battery life, hd4330(lil slow), SL9400 and 3gb ram and less than 2kg looking like a pretty nice deal for me...

    No optical, if you are fine with that and next to non-existent graphics card (ie you can only play games from 5 or more years ago) then go ahead. I would gladly sacrifice battery for power and looks and weight (and pretty much anything) for a better graphics card though.

    Forced Unleashed 2 is garbage dont even bother with it, so repetitive. Play White Knight Chronicles as thats your sort of game Kuro and you will probably love it.

    No, no better suggestion. My uni experience tells me that laptops will not be needed to be "mobile", there are computers everywhere you need them and the laptop will be sitting on your table in your room for most of the time, hence I am extremely sceptical why you will need that much battery life. If you want battery life, that laptop is quite good.

    Doesn't sound that rosy according to Engadget's review

    im not staying at my Uni and will be traveling everywhere so i originally had my heart set on an M11x, but this seems to be a nicer/cheaper trade off between speed and price

    4+6cell battery seems odd, i saw atleast 3 others with atleast 10hours with the extra thingy, maybe you are right, MOAR searching!

    Low quality as in? Low res or small image? For small image you will need to specify the picture size (the width="xxx" height="xxx" attribute), but for low res I have absolutely no idea how it became that way. Link please?
