If I were you I'd go with the i5 X550LN, paying an extra $200 just isn't worth an i7 and 4 more GBs of ram. Replacing the ram's not so costly and is an easy DIY task, just take off the pre-loaded ram (green rectangular sticks with 8 black squares) and insert the new ones into the ports and push them down.

well some people just need the portability. Not everyone's life style fits into just sitting in one place - some people actually have to move.

it's rubbish for high end gaming - of which this pc lot have gotten used to as a standard, when not everyone can afford / the situation allows for high end capabilities.
