    Ok so I was going to buy the Alienware Sentia this summer, but they disconntinued which pissed me off. Im looking for a 2nd laptop for school i currently have an Alienware Aurora 9700 as my Desktop replacement and i love it works perfectly since i got it about a year ago.. Heres all the questions see if you can help me..


    1) What is your budget?

    About 1,000$ US

    2) What size notebook would you prefer?

    b. Thin and Light; 13" - 14" screen

    I was thinking of 14in (As i said i was gonna get the Sentia)


    3) Please select your country's flag as a post icon and tell us what country are you buying this in.

    USA, Midwest

    4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?

    I was looking at a Clevo 540? i think but im open to others as well.

    5) What tasks will you be performing with the notebook?

    Schoolwork, Maybe 2boxing a Wow account every once in a while.

    6) Will you be taking the notebook with you to different places or leaving it on your desk?

    Taking it to class, which i why i want a smaller light weight.. I already have a desktop replacement 8 lbs laptop.

    7) Will you be playing games on it; if so, which games?

    Maybe some wow, minimal but as a gamer i cant have a computer that sucks at computer games.

    8) How many hours of battery life do you need?

    the more the better..

    9) Do you mind buying online without seeing the notebook in person?

    Nope. Always buy online.

    10) What OS do you prefer? Windows (XP or Vista), Mac OS, Linux, etc.

    Windows. XP or Vista whatever is cheaper.

    Screen Specifics

    11) Would you prefer standard or widescreen?

    Widescreen i suppose. But im open to standard,

    12) From the choices below, what screen resolutions would you prefer?

    Standard
    a. XGA -1024x768 - Large and easy to read text + graphics icons, but you fit less stuff on the screen.
    b. SXGA - 1400x1050 - Compromise resolution between XGA and UXGA.
    c. UXGA - 1600x1200 - Very small text and graphics icons, you can fit lots of stuff on the screen.

    Widescreen
    d. WXGA or WXGA+ - 1280x768/800 or 1440x900; Wider viewing version of XGA, good for movie viewing or spreadsheets.
    e. WSXGA+ - 1680x1050; Wider viewing version of SXGA, good for movie viewing or spreadsheets.
    f. WUXGA - 1920x1200; Wider viewing version of UXGA, good for movie viewing or spreadsheets.


    13) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen?

    Matte would be prefered. Glare annoys me

    Build Quality and Design

    14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you?

    Yes and no.. I either want a laptop that looks cool, or something that is completely plain. (No huge ass dell logos or stuff like that)

    15) When are you buying this laptop and how long do you want this laptop to last?

    Not sure.. Until i brake it?

    Notebook Components

    16) How much hard drive space do you want; 40GB to 200GB?

    80g is good 60gb will do tho.. my main computer has 160GB and i have a couple externals. so im not worried about this.

    17) Do you need an optical drive? If yes, a DVD-ROM, DVD-CD/RW or DVD-RW drive?


    Let me know what ya think.

    I would stop bumping the topic because admins could get mad, lol. If someone can help you, they will.

    Consider the Dell Inspiron 5920.

    I mean the Dell Inspiron 1520. Much better than those cyber power pc trash.
