    Why get a G74 when you can just as easily afford a VX7 with the same graphics card? I think it's still on preorder though.
    old: blue Dell Inspiron 1420 - core 2 duo processor, some very low nVidia graphics card, given to sister

    new: Asus N55SL - i7 2670qm, GT635m, 8gb RAM, 750gb 5400rpm HD, external speakers included

    Is it the 560M 2GB VRAM that you're talking about? Cause that's the one with the worse memory bus.
