I really like the ASUS Zen Book line. I don't know if they'll have an updated version soon, but there should be seeing as they're nearing a year old.

Last year's was decent though, top model is ~$1400(CAD) and features:
-i7
-4GB on board 1333mhz ddr3
-HD+ 1600x900 13.3" display
-9mm thick and 2.9;b
-256GB SSD
-50Wh battery

The next iteration would be amazing though, unless they ditch it in favour of the Transformer Infinity + Dock.

Oh yeah, I checked that out when i was looking for laptops ^^.
But anyways, do you guys think i should hold out until the new vaio/mbp comes out?
If not i'm gonna end up buying the 13" or one of the vaios, but with the vaio i guess i need to wipe it clean? if anyone could hook it up with the details via pm thatd be sick.
Thanks for the inputs btw, appreciate it.

I'm looking for a school yet able to withstand games (sc2/d3). I like the feel of windows just because i've been using it all my life. Then again, i might be ignorant. Sorry if i'm about to start a huge flame war about mac vs pc, that isnt part of my intentions.

not really. the fact that they're cramming 16gb of 1600mhz ddr3 alongside a 750gb spinning disc is baffling though. why not ssd standard? 256gb is more than enough given the prevalence of cloud and external storage options.

Rumors are that Apple will be introducing a new MacBook line at WWDC

New MacBook LIne



We expect Apple (US) to unveil a new MacBook series independent from the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. We expect the new MacBook to have the following features:

(1) Basic 13” model to be priced at US$1,199
(2) No disc drive
(3) To come in both SSD and HDD
(4) Lighter and slimmer than MacBook Pro, with equal computing power
(5) Retinal display with tapered edge, larger battery capacity

I don't really know a whole lot about building rigs but I'm pretty sure you can get a better GPU than that one for around the same price.
And lol Sandybridge. Get an Ivybridge instead.

So I am prob gonna buy myself a new laptop for my birthday finally. I was wondering has anyone heard any rumors about the new Vizio notebook (Specs). I am getting the highest spec one as it will only cost me $1099 if I turn to it. I won't have enough for other than an Mac Air or 13-inch model Pro if anything. I like doing a lot on my computer from Music Programs to Gaming but I also need it for school as they require me to have a laptop. Also supposedly the notebooks are made with premium parts/better quality than TVs.

If you're leaning towards macbooks and want a 13" Retina hold out until September - October since rumors are they're going to have a 13" Retina display. That's what i'm holding out on at least.. Hopefully the price is somewhat reasonable.

My friend got the 17" Samsung Chronos about two to three months ago. ~$1300CDN + taxes. Comes with an i7, 8GB RAM, 640GB spinning disc, I forget the GPU. It's a pretty solid laptop spec-wise, but it was brutally laggy out of the box. Sammy crammed it full of bloatware, both proprietary and non. Did a full wipe and fresh install of W7 Ultimate and now it runs fairly well. I really hate W7 as of late, especially on this computer. It'd be great if it had Ubuntu as the main OS and booted W7/OSX for Adobe products. It's got specs on par with the higher end MBPs', for the price of the entry-level models, it looks nice too, but it definitely requires tinkering.

Yes they are by far. You get a USB hub if you use alternate power supply as using cooler without it drains battery like crazy. And most can be USB powered. I use this one for my Windows laptop but I am sure it works with your macbook.

It can be ran on different levels to what you want. But yes that one is pretty big. If you have a Microcenter near you I suggest going there and checking them all out. Or going to their online store. As there as hundreds you can buy. Cooler Master generally makes the best ones for totally cooling.

What are the odds that you'd be able to do what's required to 'activate' a cracked copy if you don't even know where to look?
