Are you a student?
If so, stick with 15 inch models. Those that leave the laptop on the desk at home can opt for the 17s.
Hi all, I'd really appreciate some help. I've identified a couple of laptops within my budget, but there are a few specs I need help with. I'd appreciate any thoughts and advice you have.
The top of my budget is basically:
i7-5700HQ up to 3.50GHz CPU
GTX 970M 3GB Graphics
16GB DDR3 RAM / 256GB SSD [or 128GB SSD - doesn't change much, price wise]
15.6” FHD 1920x1080 Screen
I am considering getting something with a 17.3" screen instead,
but to do that I would either have to drop the GFX card down to
a GTX 960 or 965, and/or drop the CPU down to 4720HQ.
Do you think either of these compromises are worth making?
I can always plug the laptop into a bigger screen when I'm at home, I guess.
I am committed to 16gb RAM, at least 128 GB SSD, and an I7 47xx or 57xx processor, and GFX of at least GTX 960, preferably 965.
Any advice would be appreciated.
