build in speakers have to be pretty great and when I say that, I mean kinda like Harmon Kardon, I really dislike laptops that have very weak speakers.. sure I could get a external system but id rather not if I can avoid that, also would like to have a pretty decent display on it

I also have been looking at the macbook pro 15 2010 but really decided that might not be the best route as they could stop supporting it in 3 year time..

Also ive been working on computers for the last 6 years I am a PC guy, have used windows 10 previews since the begging, but im really lost on which laptops to look at that have came out the last 3-4 years
