Went to order the M14x but they were charging me for the backpack, which I didn't select. Not a surprise of Dell. I ordered a small dongle (less that 3" square) and they shipped it in a box large enough for a 24" monitor.
So I withdrew from my order for now. Now I'm not confined to a Dell.
Thinking of the ASUS G53SX:http://tinyurl.com/86d47oq
Problem is, when customizing to match the M14x specs, the prices goes way over the dell. Pro: Alienware has more GPU memory. Pro ASUS: HD screen, second drive.Any opinions about this important gpu memory spec?
Thinking of waiting until the CES Expo is over in a couple of weeks to see if any new models come out. Maybe I'll see a price drop. My absolute max I want to spend is $2k. Will be performing with a lot of videos so maybe having the most gpu ram is best? What about computer ram?
I guess it's apples and oranges. Maybe 2GB of gpu memory at GDDR5 is better than 3GB of gpu memory at GDDR3?
