If you are looking for a great desktop replacement which is the best bang for the buck and is capable of doing things that most desktops do, go with the 9300 (upgrade to suit your preferences- i.e. games- go with Geforce, etc.) If you are looking for something portable, light and to be used only for simple e-mail, notes and no games or high end things, go with something less spactacular. I lug my 9300 around with me and it is ok with me because I perfer a desktop in a laptop. For someone who wants simplicity without all the fancy stuff, get something smaller, however, if you later wanted to play games or show a video to your friends elsewhere while traveling or moving, you will wish that you got the 9300..im satisfied with it.
