I do web and graphic design, so i can't just buy any laptop. Also my budget is between $2000 - $ 2500. I'm looking for 17 inch and 3GB at least.
One of my few options is this one:
ASUS G2S-B2 Core 2
It does look good to me, but i can't find any reviews anywhere. The ONLY one i've found is at CNET and they call it a general purpose notebook.
Pros: Has 3 GB RAM, which is considerably more than some similarly priced notebooks. In fact, the average cost of a product with this ample a RAM is $2,550. Also, this notebook has 1920 x 1200 native screen resolution, which is somewhat higher than some similarly priced notebooks. In fact, the average cost of a product with this high a native screen resolution is $2,520.
Cons: Has a 9.7-pound weight, which is considerably heavier than some similarly priced notebooks. For example, the Sony VAIO SZ240P14 , at around $1, 900, has only a 4-pound weight. The ASUSTek ASUS G2S comes with entry-level word processing software -- serious business or academic writers probably will want to upgrade to a full-fledged office suite .
Suitability: A consumer level notebook, suited for general mobile computing. Preserve favorite home movies for future generations by saving them onto DVD with this computer's DVD recorder. With 256MB of dedicated video RAM, this machine will do very well compared to most other notebooks, when it comes to multimedia applications and games. If you have a wireless network at home, wirelessly browse the Web from any room in your house with this Wi-Fi enabled laptop.
It doesn't look like a general purpose laptop to me, a general purpose laptop for me would be a $800 one.
There's other options out there, but overall this one looks the best to me, there's some other nice choices but most 15 inch , and i cant work with that.
Any suggestions or ideas ? Or does anyone has something to say about this model ?
