Well, I pulled the trigger. This is the best deal Ive seen on any i7 laptop: 3rd gen i7 quad core, 17.5" hd screen w/hdmi out, 8gb ddr, etc...Amazing amazing laptop and a steal for this price, you cant do any better IMHO, and i doubt well see a deal this good again, even on black friday!
Im so pleased because the laptop im using right now, as in the one im typing here with lol, is very old (4 years old) and its on its way out. I wanted an i7 quad core with 8gb of ram so bad because I am a musician and need it for audio programs, so this is even more than I need.
My laptop runs out of memory and buffer underruns, and this never will. I do absolutely HATE and LOATH windows 8, but I will handle it. I cant find the link but there is a way to use windows 7 on windows 8.
anyway its sold out and im glad i caught one. I talked to another member who bought the groupon one and he said it arrived without a scratch or dent so i hope i get one of those
