Default Re: Am I upgrading or downgrading?

to be honest, It barely has a better spec than the Aspire One, the processor is the same speed, only has 1GB more RAM and a bigger screen


And it's a big fat Acer, you'll be replacing failed drives and troubleshooting BSOD in no time lol

Well, if your going to be a student, cash is probably going to get tight. So, you dont want to be shelling out money replacing or upgrading. So, i recommend you look at some more premium options.

For example: Newegg.com - HP Pavilion dv7-4280us NoteBook Intel Core i5 480M(2.66GHz) 17.3" 6GB Memory 750GB HDD 5400rpm BD Combo AMD Radeon HD 6550M

If you were to sell your rig, what would your budget be?

That HP is a Saleen 550 Mustang, to revive the car analogy.
