So I've gotten permission to look for a new laptop...my old one as an Asus 17 inch and a bit on the heavy side for gaming on the couch. First, a short explanation: I'm looking to more-or-less replace my desktop which I haven't upgraded in quite a while but has been adequate for my needs. I've never been a cutting edge gamer so anything decent is probably going to last me a while (I assume I'll get to Skyrim eventually but that's a ways off). Besides that, Photoshop elements, Vmware Workstation for training, but nothing super intensive for a modern computer. I appreciate the build quality of Alienware laptops, but I'd like something a bit more subtle. (If I bring it to work, I'd like it to be a little more stealthy if possible)
The laptop that I've been reading about is the Lenovo Ideapad y580:
Any thoughts, opinions?
