wow. amazing comp. but it's expensive. by all means, get it if u can afford it and if u need it. but for reasons other than that, it is overkill.

agreed. I'd just get a pretty cheap laptop for school stuff and then a good desktop for gaming. Laptops just are not designed for gaming. That one does have great parts, but it will be heavy and will probably have a short battery life.

U will get a nice (maybe used?) laptop for $500, then u would still have 2k left for the desktop.
