I was introduced to PCS by a friend and can't to get my hands on a custom built laptop for general use (some college work, downloading/watching movies, listening to music, internet and also connecting to my TV to use and watch Blurays etc).
I have been drawn towards the Optimus III and like the spec below. I am not a techie and not a big PC gamer so am unsure really if this spec will suit my needs or is a bit OTT?
Another question: Why is it £1 cheaper for exactly the same spec on a 17.3" Optimus III?? I would have thought that you would pay more for the bigger screen? Any reasons for or against either screen size? I am not too worried about portability as I will mostly be using it at home but I want something that will comfortably sit on my lap!
My preliminary spec is as follows:
