|smith6ar||Just picked up a ThinkPad Edge E530 core i3 for $420 plus tax. Pretty good deal considering my old laptop broke today (needs a new CPU or motherboard or something) Hopefully Lenovo's build quality means I can get a few years out of this laptop.|

I was deciding between acer and the lenovo deal. and decided on the lenovo deal after comparing performance benchmarks.
Acer deal: http://slickdeals.net/f/5189178-ACER-Aspire-V3-Laptop-i5-2450M-2-5GHz-17-3-LED-1600x900-6GB-DDR3-500GB-5400rpm-HDD-2GB-NVIDIA-GT-630M-HDMI-2-USB-3-0-DVDRW-Bluetooth-4-0-6-Cell-Win-7-549-99-FS?p=53185306&u

I got the above, except 14" screen. for $545 + tax. the lenovo gt635m is not a true 635m source but it should be a tiny bit slightly faster than gt550m (same shader, very slightly higher core speed) link .
3dmark06: 8675 vs 8469.
In summary, the cpu and gpu are differently by only 2-3%, so totally not important. I only considered screen size and resolution, build quality. I didn't want a 17" even though I would love the extra resolution. But, the lenovo keyboard has a track point and keypad, and I have heard good things about their build quality lately. I trust lenovo durability quite a bit more as well. Very close decision.
I used AMEX cc which 2x warranties on products, some VISA do as well. google cc extended warranty for more info.

Received my E530 yesterday from my order a few weeks ago. No separate number keypad. There was no picture on the site when ordered so I asked in their "chat". I guess that was useless. Took about 20 minutes on the phone with them to agree to take it back and not charge me a restocking fee. I use the number pad often, so be aware to verify and re-verify if this is a feature you want/use.
I think I will wait now a month or so as the sandy bridge laptops are appearing here and there... selling out fast when they do however. Also check the "new" prices as I ran one to see what it would cost new and it was just $140 more with all new everything. Odd thing is the keyboard only comes with the numpad with a new one. Weird mine didn't

i think its a 1st gen i7 dual core, 512mb video. don't need gaming graphics, just hd movies. i think this doesn't have hdmi though so maybe not for me. anyway, i'm having a hard time sizing up these computers and want someone's analysis. thanks
