sorry about asking these questions again :(

I value you advice highly my friends and want to ask you again about a laptop.

1st wanted this since 10/22/09 ( now it's discontinued )

then this came out 1/15/10 ( too many reviews about running HOT )
Gateway Official Site: Shop - Notebooks – NV7915u Laptop Product Details

now I'm trying to save for this one: ( B4 it gets discontinued )
add another $120 for ability to play 4x blue ray discs - nv 7919u
Gateway Official Site: Shop - Notebooks – NV7923u Laptop Product Details

1.) has anyone PLAYED with / OWN a laptop with an I3 &/or I5 processor?
2.) how much better than the system I currently have ?

ps. these all have an extra bay for a slave drive! ( not mentioned on specs )

all the best

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 ®™

I'd rather buy an H.P than a Gateway system, and I'd never dream of buying a HP, but each to their own. Have a look at some on Newegg, and what you could get for your budget...

Windows Seven Ultimate

The advantages of the Gateway NV7923u compared to your current system -
Huge, High Definition, screen
extra 1 gb RAM
Core i5 - Turbo Boost capabilities - The upgrade to this CPU would be very noticeable in performance.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

It will be faster, but tremendously so? Not really. that is not at all to say that it is a bad notebook, but the question becomes what is your usage? Keep in mind, Core i5 withstanding, this is still a budget dedicated gpu. If the screen size is an issue, and adding blu-ray, so you were "in the market" for another computer anyways, then IMHO it is just fine. I am just saying that aside of screen size or adding blu-ray, there is little that this computer offers that your current one is not well capable of doing, right?

BTW, although I tend to go with HP's, my wife sells Gateways as well as other notebooks, and their track record appears as good as anyone else's...although I do always love the descriptions...<I>"night sky black..."</I>'s <I>black</I> right??? 'Ya gotta love marketers!
