    My vote is Samsung, and like HT I say go with the Evo, it's just as good for you but cheaper.

    I think I'm going to go with Samsung, too. I'll update later on what I order. I'm going to wait a few days to see what November sales bring...and that gives me time to read the Black Friday ads. :D Thanks everyone!

    @saturnotaku So, I realized the list of stores wasn't showing correctly for me. My sister has 2 stores by her! Can I order and have her pick it up for me? It's a bit far for me. :(

    I also saw (thanks to hmscott, Galm, and others) that the P650HS is on sale at Microcenter for a great price! (It's what I've been considering to buy!) Do you think it's worth it to purchase the P650HS from Microcenter, even though I won't be able to get liquid metal or free 30 day no dead pixel guarantee?

    I’ve never seen a used 850 Pro of that capacity show up at that price. And even if it did, it would be gone within minutes.

    Apples to oranges comparison since the 850 Pro is a current product and the M500 has been discontinued for years.
