I'm graduating from law school in May and I am getting a new laptop as part of my graduation present (to myself). I don't know much other than I don't want a Mac - I used to have a MacBook Pro, and while I was very happy with it, I'm not willing to spend that much money for specs that aren't that great compared to their PC brethren. With that said, I am willing to spend up to $1,500 but I'd prefer to keep the price closer to $1,000.
I will use this laptop for work and gaming but I don't want it to look like a gaming laptop - must be respectable and not "showy" so I can bring it to court in the fall. I play everything from Civilization V to Skyrim and I plan on picking up Diablo III when it releases. Basically, I want this laptop to play all new release games on at least medium settings but I would prefer to play them on high-ultra settings, if possible. I'd prefer to have a 15 inch screen to a 17 inch one to cut down on the weight of carrying it to and from court.
Any suggestions that you guys, or gals, have are appreciated. Let me know if you need any other suggestions. Look forward to hearing from you!
