Just get a desktop they are better, if you are to college, nevermind



No reason for a desktop anymore. They're big, noisey, suck up too much electricity, not portable, heat up the room they're in, etc.
 
An $800 laptop will easily be as powerful as a $500 desktop (if not more in some respects). So whats the point of a desktop anymore?

yea, i'm probably going to go with the 6150 and the 12 cell battery. as long as the laptop doesn't freeze on me while playing media like my current laptop does i'm happy. i'll stick to buying a ps3 in a year or two if i get that gaming urge lol

that wouldn't work. my whole dorm room is geared towards me having a laptop. i put a cushion on my bed so i could chill on it more while on the laptop, my tv faces away from my desk and towards my bed, i don't have two available outlets tha would be required for the monitor and pc, and i can't take a desktop to class...lol

Sounds good. You definitely want that 12 cell battery if you're gonna be using it in classes at all. It will add a little bit of bulk on the back end, but it's worth it to get the extra time it offers. plus if you're sitting at a desk and don't like it, take it out!
 
The 6150 should be perfect for what you're looking for then. Console gaming has gotten way better than PC gaming anyway
