In my opinion, yes overall, it is a newer and better system, but the video card is quite a bit slower than the GTX260 on the ASUS. I think the average 3dmark06 score is around 7500 on the radeon and 10500 on the GTX260. Nvidia also uses 256bit memory (128 bit for the Radeon) and GDDR3 NOT the regular DDR3 (slower) that comes with the Radeon.
Not really. GTX 260m > 9800gs > 5650. We are talking gaming laptops here, last thing I would want is a mid range card when you can get some high end ones with some dust on it.
Also, 128 bit bus rate? Laughable compared to the 256 bit 9800m gs/GTX 260m.
How do you get those deals? I go to the site and it gives me the original price, after going to bing.com and searching for tigerdirect.com it just gave me a link to tiger direct, not a coupon code and tiger direct doesnt even have a place to enter a coupon code.
Unfortunately I live in canada too so they want to charge me 150 dollars for shipping, the canadian site wants to sell it for 850 aswell.
