Not the one I always wanted but the one I could afford

Summary: I got this one with 16GB RAM, a slower 1TB HDD, and Windows 7. It has a 265GB boot drive on it too. My wife gets a Dell discount through her job and I saved probably $200-300 and got away with a very powerful machine.
For the more frugal non apple fanboy, this will be a solid media\gam laptop

Summary: With an upgrade to an m650 graphics card and a decent i5 processor, this laptop is plenty powerful for media consumption and playing MMO's like SWTOR on the go. The overall size is compact though this is a thick laptop.
Summary: My son loves his new computer he got for Christmas this last season, however, the sound card went on the fritz recently. He called tech support/customer service, got through easily and was walked through various steps to try to debug the problem.
Summary: I have to admit before you continue reading... I bought the computer after coming back from a Macbook Pro. I absolutely loved the Macbook, but for compatibility and price (of upgrades) issues, I decided to go back to the PC.
Summary: I've got to say I love this laptop. I just got one last Christmas, and can tell you it lives up too expectations. I will agree, apparently Dell support is horrendous. My laptop does have a speaker problem, and neither audio jack is working, but I have yet to contact anyone.
