Well, I've built a custom PC last year. But I'll need a notebook for my study..
So I've been searching for the past few days. The biggest con is that I'm limited to Dutch/European resellers.
Somehow those notebook graphic are all better than my PC's :P
Probably because my PC has its integrated and 2 PCIe x16 slots for expansion. :roll:
Now that I think of it, I seriously need to expand the RAM..
Anyway.. Here's what I came up with from a Dutch reseller:

     VAT      19 %    
         
     Total    incl. VAT         € 1115,03

I didn't pick any Windows OS and therefore there's no OEM cr@p on it either.
Still got the Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit I used for this PC and I can probably run Linux on it too.
Hmm.. I'd rather have it cost around €1000.
Not sure if the extra year carry-in warranty is necessary...
And I have no experience with the €60! Pixel warranty at all.
Those two would save almost a hundred €. Will you share your stories and advice? :)
Will be needing this in September so there's plenty of time... (for prices to drop :D)

 :shock: Same configuration costs € 1144 today.. Anyway, I think that the pixel warranty is worth it. I don't think I wouldn't forgive myself when I get one that someone else *with* the warranty didn't get :P I still have 'till at least November to place my order. Maybe I'll go and have a look at their workshop some time. Any haggling advices? :lol:
