Re: New Laptop Buy!
I'm usually not a fan of warranties, but I'd recommend picking up a lappy toppy from Best Buy or a similar retailer that offers a good warranty. And by good, I mean them fixing it for you at no extra cost down the line and offering a loaner.
I bought this Gateway FX in 2008. Dedicated Nvidia GPU 512mb, has a P9700 CPU in it. Well after about 2 years, from opening closing it, I got the dreaded cable/solder problem and I started to get lines in the screen. Basically, the soldering comes apart from the MB that connects to the screen. Took it to BB and they fixed it at no extra cost (I got the 3 year warranty). Having the repair done alone would have run +300.
