    I would like your opinion on what is the best laptop on the market today?


    I am currently looking to upgrade mine and am curious as to what the best processor is right now?

    I was looking into the Intel Core i7-3960X @ 3.30GHz
    but want to make sure that it is the best processor on the market today.


    I will not be doing much gaming but i will be using it to run multiple SEO programs at once including Xrumer from time to time when im not running it on my VPS.


    I appreciate your help.


    Thanks You.

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    If money is not a problem....

    buy the fastest MAC laptop.... and format the drive...
    and install windows.

    Nothing against MAC operating system... just that windows is a better environment for SEO tools.....

    The mac display blows anything out there.
    and the MAC computers run windows really really fast.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Changing a MacBooks OS to a windows one sounds good.

    Only downside about Apple macs is the CPU ghz is quite low and the screen size really isnt that big.

    I dont really know much about macs though so it might not be that bad :)

    Try dell precision, I use one and very powerful.
    Don't use MAC, i think MAC is useless for SEO.

    Go for an High End Dell Latitude or An HP Pavillion! It packs in one of the best technologies !

    If you prefer a Mac, go for a Macbook Pro 13 as it adds portability factor as well, dont go for the MacBook Air as the otical drive goes for a toss !!

    If you plan to use some decent specs always prefer the entertainment or the corporate segment !

    Entry level home laptops even with the more high end processors do not equip you with decent chipsets !

    I used to work for dell... if you need any help please PM !!

    i7-3960X is the newest intel core and it costs around $1000...and no it's definitely not suited for laptops.

    best laptop processor today is probably i7-2630QM

    the mac's are nice - displays are great - and they do run windows well however personally I'm a bigger fan of the lenovos....

    unless you want something uberportable, would suggest a lenovo T or W series with an SSD & take out the dvd bay and put in a 1TB hd... best combo of speed & storage out there....

    Go For for Mac.

    Also,if you don't want to completely wipe out OSX and still use windows,you can use Fusion.
