Dell updated its website about a week ago with new laptops, using the new Intel redesigned i7 CPUs. I ordered this:
2nd generation Intel Core i7-2720QM processor
16GB DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M 3GB CUDA graphics
256GB SSD + 640GB 7200 RPM SATA HDD
17.3in FHD WLED TL (1920x1080) 3D
eSATA, USB 3.0 x2
Not too shabby for $2,800.
Only thing I wish is that it had two eSATA ports, maybe maybe more options for the screen.
BTW, I wonder if it might be useful to have a "Computers" forum here? Some posts like these sort of fall between OT and maybe Workflow?
