Isn't that only 300 more than what you quoted before? IMO well worth the cost in the drastic difference in performance.

Also I like the sleekness of the N series, but then again I also like razer blades

Shouldn't change up currencies like that, speak in your currency. Before you put 2000 AUD, then after you put USD. What would the same laptop be in YOUR currency?

Stay in your currency and it wouldn't be

Well that's a big jump for a big jump in performance so that's really up to you.

U know how when a new version of windows is released all the pcs and laptops styles and specs change so should I wait for win 10? What do you think?

Hardware doesn't change based on Windows releases. If you want to later you can install Windows 10 perfectly fine on your laptop. IF you wait until Windows 10 for your purchase what you want might be a bit cheaper.
