And I was wondering what you folks think. I'm looking to sell ALL my computer stuff and get a lappy so that I can change my lifestyle to one of more traveling and whatnot, instead of sitting around the house. Thus, I'd like a decent laptop gaming machine (Warcraft III, maybe TF2, etc) which is also suited for typing papers and doing research.
Anyway, according to Speccy, because I don't know all the details about my computer (also part of the reason I come to you with this thread), I'm running Windows XP Professional with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 prcoessor @2.13 GHZ and Conroe 65nm Technology, whatever the heck that is.
My ram is 1 GB @ only 333 mhz (ack!), with Geforce 8500 GT graphics.
The hard drive is only a 40 gig Seagate drive, but I use a 1tb Seagate drive to store all my files.
I have an Acer H243H monitor which is probably one of the fancier parts of the whole rig, at 24 inch widescreen, 1080p, 3 or 5 ms response time, and I believe a 40,000:1 ratio. PS3 games look awesome on it.
I have a decent optical drive, and I use realtek high def audio for my audio drivers. I use external speakers made by Altec Lansing, and they're good, but not great. They're wired but when placed correctly, can create the illusion of surround sound.
I guess my first question would be, how much do you think I can reasonably charge for all of this? I was thinking maybe 500 bucks, given the speakers, monitor, terabyte drive, and rig itself.
My second question is, what's the best laptop I should get? I'm currently really interested in the Asus 30ulvt, as it's gotten glowing reviews and looks to be about everything I need in a system.
So does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for them.
tl;dr: I have a decent computer with great monitor, terabyte drive, and good speakers that I'm looking to sell for a student/gaming laptop. How much can I get for my rig and what laptops do you guys and gals suggest?
