well, i see the ram is DDR2 and not DDR3 but i guess its not a biggy.
and its have a 9cell batt, does a 9cell batt have an ass or is it all in ?
but the main problem is that its a $1200

cons : less cpu + ddr2 + less then 2 hours uptime + $100 more
pros : better GPU

all the cons are not as bad as that its less then 2 hours uptime
i want a laptop that i could watch at least a 2:20 hours movie with one charge

sorry for the late answer, was a little busy.

yes, i think ill be fine with a lower VGA.
since i want my laptop to hold for at least 2.3 hours of watching video.

maybe a dual card ? use my built in card for watching video and switcing to something better when playing ? i think asus have such a thing, dont they ?

maybe now in holiday season i can get a big discount too, any idea ?
