Okay, so it's time to upgrade my laptop as my current one is unable to meet my requirements. Currently, I'm using Dell Precision M4500. Never failed me at all. But I did a really stupid thing - listening to others instead of researching and deciding on my own. Few years back when i7 was released, I was told that it is still 'new' and overpriced. I was asked to get i5 (2.6 ghz, 4 cores) instead. What's worst, I got the 32bit instead... so the maximum RAM I got was just 4GB. Graphics card is Quadro FX 1800M (sucks for gaming, seriously.. just for 3D and professional work). Despite all of that, it still fucking rocks. Never crashed, never hanged, and never had problems. But it is getting obsolete because it doesn't even have HDMI port, .etc. So I was told that M4800 might be coming out real soon. But release date wasn't published or given. I asked the Dell representatives and they just said, "soon... perhaps at 4th Quarter of this year." So I was playing around with the current model that Dell has to offer - Dell M4700. All the specs I customized and upgraded to the one I want will cost me a total of $5K at least. And yes, still the old 3rd gen i7 processor. I like their design (left image - m4800's design) as I like M4500's one (right image). Business- and professional- like. Then I found out that there was a local customize laptop service in my country. It's called AfterShock PC. I would say they are still relatively new but they are trying to make attempts to enter the laptop market in Asia. But for only $4500, I could get the following specs: 4th Generation Intel® Haswell Core™ i7-4900MQ Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz) NVIDIA GEFORCE 780M GTX 4GB DDR5 with Optimus Technology (even better than what Alienware has to offer) 32GB DDR3 1600MHZ (4X8) Samsung MSATA SSD 256GB as primary hard disk 500GB Samsung 840 SSD as secondary hard disk Windows 7 Professional 64bit Here's their minimalistic design look like (although I don't really like it. If you're discussing with clients and you pull out a laptop with that design below.. it kinda looks weird): Yes, so the Dell will have similar specs but definitely will have an average graphics card that is meant for 3D and video-editing work. And I don't know if they will ever implement 4th gen i7 processors in their new models. But yes, still 32 GB of RAM. 500GB Solid State Drive hard disk only. Both companies also provide 2-3 years of parts replacement and warranty. But so far Dell has never failed me... AfterShock has even more powerful specs but have never tried them... and their exterior design is, well... terrible. So your opinion? Or should I just wait? P.S: I'm asking because I'm relatively outdated in computer technology. And will be using it for 3-4 years.
