My current laptop is just hitting 3 years old and the battery died while at the Mid-west SG meet-up in KC. I've been looking at new laptops for awhile and finally broke down and customized one from HP (no I didn't decide to switch to Mac LOL). The only concession I feel like I made was on the HD - I wanted 7200 RPM, but I wanted 1TB more. I'm pretty happy with the rest, it should handle gaming and Photoshop with ease. It's scheduled to be built on 24Oct2011, so I'm expecting to have it by 31Oct2011. I just had to share!
