Default Advice....

I want your opinion on specs and colour choice (lol yes Iam that vain) of this laptop:

Discount Laptops Asus Sale Laptop Uk Best Buy Notebook Computer deal

Discount Laptops Asus Sale Laptop Uk Best Buy Notebook Computer deal

Currently leaning towards the yellow....


edit: Asus say that it has 7.9 hours battery life but that can't be right as its too high spec????obviously you cutdown on brightness, wlan, the processes running and save power but that must be an extreme battery

The yellow stands out. Though in my opinion, I like the black one, because I like all my computers in black.
