    I don't think I can welcome a Man U supporter, I'll check my Kop manual:p

    Hope you beefed up your security abit, that nice notebook will be easier to carry.

    - Sorry to hear about your burglary though, there aren't enough words to describe these people.

    It looks like an awesome computer based on my limited knowledge of hardware.

    It's clearly more power than I could ever use based on my day-to-day needs. But help me understand why it is as expensive as it is. Why doesn't it cost $1,000 less? What component(s) drive up the cost?

    Thanks,
    Len

    Great machine, two HDs, great CPU, quality speakers, integrated tv-tuner and much more. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Personally I would never spend that money on a notebook and I would expect more memory and Win7 pro or ultimate (64bit). Also for that money I would expect a more unique design ( I don't know about the materials used ). In any case it's a great machine and sincerely wish you to have a lot of fun and be productive and creative with your new machine.

    Hee, didn't you know L'pool was the capital of northern Wales.
    Funnily enough my online geo location is usually Manchester or London.

    Amazing how these machines stay cool enough to run.

    Thought i would share my experience from last year (september) when researching to purchase a new laptop both online and in the stores.

    Firstly, buying from the big names (Dell, HP,etc) doesn't give you a better laptop or better service or warranties. In fact, you "Overpay"! Each store i went into tried to steer me to the big names which all only provided a 1 year warranty. They then try to get you to buy at a substantial cost, a 3 year extended warranty. "Not"

    I then settled on 2 brands - MSI - world wide reputation for computer parts and ASUS, which happens to build the most reliable computers. Each offered out of the box, 2-3 year warranties depending on place of purchase and product model.

    Unlike the OP, price was a factor and i had a budget to stick with. The features i got with my MSI would of cost hundreds more to get with a Dell, HP and i got a 2 year warranty.

    With some researching and looking at ASUS/MSI, the OP could of got more for less money.

    MSI are what is considered entry level here in Australia, in other words, undesireable :cautious:

    lol!

    Here is a similar spec'd example from Asus who make very reliable laptops.

    Comes with a 2 year warranty, 8gbs ram and full HD video (1900x1200) All for $1000.00 less than what you paid.

    My original post was to help others who are shopping for one now and not to point out your big time over paying. :rolleyes:
