This is my first post, and didn't think it warranted a new thread as the OP has already started a simialr one. Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes!
Anyways, I'm in a very similar position. I have a laptop on order with the following specs:
15.4" Screen @ 1280x800
8x cd/dvd rw
This machine is coming in at just over the €900 mark delivered, using all sorts of coupons.
I've come across another machine from the same manufacturer with a similar spec:
15.4" Screen @ 1680x1050
2x bd drive
This unit is coming in on a certain auction site at just under €520 delivered. Granted this price is liable to go up, but I can't see it reaching the same price as the first machine.
Surely the second machine is better value yeah?
It's gonna be used primarily as a desktop replacement. It won't be mobile much.
Thanks ahead of time guys.
