looks like I'll be getting the hp pavilion G6. the mafia hp sales rep made me an offer I couldn't refuse. he is offering me a pavilion G6 that was used for a few hours as a demo for 4500 rand (about $450) $450 for a second generation i3 2.4GHz, 750 GB hard drive, 4GB RAM, Intel 3000- it's too tempting to resist or its anacer V5 i3 with same specs for $600- what do you think ? should I take the G6 ? or the V5 i3 ?
I'm now at the too purchase decision and to be honest there are hp shops close to where I live so finding assistance such as technical issues or needing a new battery is much easier. though on the acer I am reluctant to leave the glowing keys. it looks as pretty as an alianware keyboard but am I willing to pay an extra$150 and sacrifice the easy support and convince of being able to walk into an hp shop and find any replacement part my heart desires for it ? OH THE PAIN OF CHOICE!!!!!!!!!!Oh and I discovered that Samsung laptops are amazing with their anti aging battery technology and solid build quality, I dug my finger into the back of the LCD on their bottom range laptop and didn't see a signal distortion in the display as for all other laptops I tested,you could see distortions very easy. and then we have the anti reflective mat display that comes standard on all Samsung laptops and like hp they have official shops everywhere....I SAY AGAIN....OH THE PAIN OF CHOICE!!!!!
heres what the glowing keys look like: S7_keys_L.jpg
any help on deciding will be greatly appreciated.
