At Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220518

I want a machine to use for surfing at work and movies in flight.I also want it capable of streaming to a 40" HDTV in my bedroom @ 1080P.

I wish this had a Blue-Ray drive but...

Do you think it can handle streaming Blue-Ray's from an external HDD to a HDTV via HDMI?

I liked the Asus G50Vt-X5 at BB but didn't want the LED light display. Is the N50Vn-X6 a good deal for $799? With shipping it's about $850 to me so I could get the G50Vt-X5 for $50 more.

I think this comes with Vista 32 bit and I plan on blowing that away with Vista Ultimate 64 Bit. Any problems there? Any with Windows 7 RC hit's next month?

Thoughts on this lappy for the bucks?

THANKS!

I said it on NBR, and I'll say it again: Buy it.

If you want more info on Vista X64, PM johnny3144. He also has the same laptop.

avanish THANKS for you replies and help. I really appreciate it. I am just firing up an Asus G50VT-X5. I already have buyers remorse. But I also have a laptop.

I figure I can tell the girls in the office I have actually been an advance spy for Admiral Adama and the Republic of Gamers thing is just to confuse the Cylons.

Your welcome :D

Buyers remorse? I had that about a month after I bought my N50, because of the same laptop that you have right now :lol: I didn't really care about looks. I just wanted good hardware. My dad told me to wait until January to buy the laptop, but I went ahead and bought the N50 in November. When the G50vt-X5 came out in January, I was kicking myself for not waiting. Oh well.

If you want, I'll trade ya my N50 for your G50. ;) :P

Dude. Telling girls ANYTHING that involves cylons will NOT get you laid.

Think I'll hold onto it for a while. I'm trying to figure out how much of the Bullshit I can uninstall. Trendmicro just went bye bye. And Symantec Endpoint went on. Time to kill the GD UAC!!
