because of the 7200 rpm hard drives, the facial recognition security and tyhe powerfull graphics card.
But also I read the Some PC vendors and sellers will begin a coupon program on June 26 to entitle people who buy premium versions of Microsoft Windows Vista to upgrade to the new Windows 7 operating system when it arrives later this year but there may be a charge unlike it was with Vista.
Well I'm a high school student and my Dell XPS M1210 is crapping out on me. I've decided it's really time for an upgrade but I'm not exactly sure what to get. I'm looking to get a good balance of portability and performance, but with durability as well. The biggest problem I've had with the M1210 is its frail plastic case which is covered in holes. I've got it down to just a few choices now though, after much research: the HP Pavilion dv2z with an AMD Athlon Neo X2 @1.6GHz and 4GB DDR2 RAM ($824), the Lenovo x200 with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 @2.26GHz and 4GB DDR3 ($999), or the Asus X83Vm-X2 with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 @2.26GHz and 4GB DDR2 ($759). Since I won't have as many textbooks next year the added weight of the Asus is not a big deal.
I've reached a dilemma between these three: the Asus has the best performance but is heavier, the HP will be sexy and light but slower processor and higher heat output, and the Lenovo is a happy medium but has such deterrent features as the lack of a touchpad and integrated graphics (even the dv2z I selected has discrete ATI).
Recommendations between the three?
