    Add to that the fact that the Z62j has WXGA+ and a webcam/mic!

    Plus... it's "ugliness" can *ahem* deter thieves.. :rolleyes:

    go for the sexy... I bought a z63a (w3 chassis) and I personally think the aesthetics are hard to beat. only regret is that I didn't have the bling to put down on a W3V at the time. while it's true that the internals are extremely important to the experience, I think that the aesthetics can't be left out.

    here's a little question to add on.

    If you have a good looking laptop do mostly girls come to you and ask what is it? or are they guys?

    Also if you have a not so great looking laptop, do guys or girls ask what is it?

    Hopefully that would sway your thinking LOL.

    Thanks,

    My opinion is that the inside is what matters, and I am a girl!

    First question is do you need the webcam while your on the go? If not, I would go for the w3j or the v6j, which I think is the sexiest machine out right now.

    But then again I am biased. I have a w3v which I love. However, it still was a little too bland for me so I had it some airbrush work done to it. $$$$$$

    The question is how much money do you want to spend and do you have anything more important to spend it on.

    Rey do you mind posting some pics of your laptop, i would like to see the airbrush design.

    Personaly the looks of a laptop do matter to a certain degree. I don't like how the Acer Ferrari 3000 models looks, with all that red, it looks too flashy and not that welcoming.

    The Z63a and W3J are the best looking 14" laptops i've seen, the Z63a has a nice combination of colours and brushed aluminum that makes it look sleek and sexy.

    The W3J is some kinda black glossy finish, it is real nice, and gets people attention. It is just sexy!.

    THe V6 series is just sleek! nice brushed aluminum touches to make it look good.

    The ASUS Z70va is subtle but still business looking, and will catch others attention.

    THe new models are not ugly ugly, like some dells, and hp laptops. But the Lid really needs a small touch up to make it more attractive.

    I do suggest trying those vynals or get the lid painted with some awsome aribrush colouring or something. Flames? Ice? Car? etc.

    Thanks,

    MysticGolem

    I post some new pics of my machine later. I previously posted some that I took right after I put it back together but the quality of the pics sucks. I'll try to take some better ones tonight.
