Re: Help Me Spec a Laptop for My Wife

said by Dissembled:

No way in hell my wife is getting a better GPU than me. That's where I draw the line!!!! lol I'll save that cash or respc elsewhere.

Places like iBuyPower/CyberPower offer an incredible amount of freedom in terms of selecting individual components (as selected above), and far & above the big brands like Dell/HP/etc.

That said, there is only so much flexibility you can get--the laptop I linked you only has one graphics card option. The 650M is probably one of the weakest mobile GPUs you can get in a BTO machine, given the 17"/multi-drive form factor.

Mobile GPUs are also far weaker than their desktop equivalents, as well, so I wouldn't get too hung up on the model of GPU your wife is getting.

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
