Well I honestly don't fancy carting my desktop and 19" CRT to & fro when I come home from uni. A laptop seems like the logical option and, since it will have to last me 3 years, I figured it's worth getting a half-decent one. I actually thought Dell seemed like good value and their systems are priced significantly lower than others I've seen.
The annoying thing is, a system no sooner appears on the Dell Outlet store before it is sold and consequently disappears, which means I need to make a quick decision when push comes to shove, and I want to make sure I'm getting the best I can for the money.
There are 3 possiblities in terms of graphics options,
nVidia GeForce 6800 ULTRA
nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX
nVidia GeForce 7900 GS (the GTX is rediculously over-priced)
... all of which I have seen in systems listed on the Dell Outlet store.
The difference in price is often neglegable (+/- £100).
What would you go for, bearing in mind the rest of the system is as my original post describes?
