    Recently i posted i was going to get a 9300 and save a few bucks as i got the scores i needed.
    But my family disagrees. They want me to wait till before i leave for college till i get a new laptop so its less outdated by the time i am a senior there.
    So i guess ill be waiting here for the 9300 successor with yonah chipset and 7800 gtx card!

    Certainly, there is some logic from their perspective (at least in a computer hardware sense).

    But, you could argue that the fall you start college is really the worst time for you to be breaking in a new high powered gaming rig. I mean, we all tend to play with our new toys a lot more when we first get them. You've taken your SATs, will soon be admitted to wherever you want to go, so I figure (God forgive me for saying this) that your high school grades from here on out aren't really very important.

    So, this may be the perfect time for a new notebook. :)

    Look on the bright side, at least you will have a better laptop when you actually do go to college. It will be worth it in the long run though I know it is frustrating now.

    Actually, the distraction issue is a good point - not to make to your parents, but to be aware of for your own good. It would be a good idea to get it at the end of the year (which is probably their plan - a graduation gift).

    Yes...if you already have a laptop just wait it out.

    I regretted buying my Nvidia 6800 for my desktop because those 7800gt's came out, but you can't always stay on top of technology.

    Which laptop do you currently have?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    You could bump up the hard drive and RAM in that, it would make a decent machine. At least good enough to hold you over.

    eh i would rather just wait and spend it on my new laptop. Then this laptop can just be for typing documents/ checking mail.
    Coincidently it does that pretty badly as the keyboard doesnt work right and i use an external. The main thing that pisses me off.
