Hello all,

I'm in need of a decent laptop that will last me a few years. Needs to be Intel i5 or better with dedicated graphics, preferably nVidia.

Willing to pay around $600, Possibly more.

Thanks,
Garrett

Alienware m11x first gen, OC 1.7Ghz C2D with integrated and discrete graphics, unfortunately not Optimus enabled, so it has to be switched manually. 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD, and/or the original 500 GB with 7200 RPM. I've got Peppermint OS on it at the moment, but I can put Windows 7, 8 consumer beta, or just about any other linux on it, or wipe it entirely.

spendbitcoins.com -> amazon giftcard -> http://goo.gl/Ev4p6

It has everything you want and it's new.  The only downside is it's a little above your price point.

Thanks for making that look nice, but my school blocks goo.gl and I'm on my blackberry which I don't have a VPN/proxy set up on Tongue

I'm probably going to end up buying that Alienware but I'll check it out when I get home.

Try opera mobile, they have special built in proxies.

Ill sell you my hp pavilion dv7, its a 17.5 inch screen in near mint condition, it has only left my house a few times and that was to take it to the library.

Its got a 4200m dedicated card, it can a lot of games, but don't expect it to run like bf3 at max settings. I'm asking for payment in newegg giftcards, and expect it upfront. The hard drive may or may not come with it, so I'll adjust the price accordingly.

Does that depend on whether you can find your CP eraser?

are you looking for a desktop replacement or something you can actually bring around?

Definitely portables only. I have an awesome desktop that I refuse to give up Grin

I just bought the alienware from moocow. 47BTC sent now, $180 Dwolla to be sent when it arrives.

Thanks for the offers everyone.
