Given that technology moves on rather more rapidly than the other areas of Arrse, I thought I'd post a new thread rather than resurrecting the ZX81 thread using the search function. I'm looking for a new laptop. I've done the usual trawls through the reviews but given the amount of choice out there was hoping that the experts on Arrse could narrow my choices down a bit. Attempting to be realistic, I am looking for something that, in order, is: Very rugged, but not necessarily ruggedised. Has huge disk space (preferably dual drive) Has superb performance for graphics and sound Does not require a flatbed lorry to carry it. Most of the time I would use it for work - Office suite - but I would like to use it after work for videos, gaming, image processing and the like. I have been looking at gaming laptops and was drawn to the Asus G73Jh, but I'm a bit concerned about size/weight & ruggedness. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
