New laptop

Post by DeathStrike »

Hi guys.

So I am planning to buy a laptop after payday.

I want something that will be future proof for a bit.

I have found the Asus ROG G56JK DM076H.

It has i7 cpu 4710HQ
8gb ram
1TB HDD
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 850M 2GB DDR5

Price is around R14k.

Is there anything better that is max R15k?

I based in Cape Town. Viewing the laptop is bit of a thing for me. Like to see it before I buy it.

Thanks.

That looks really good. Has a 5400rpm HDD though, might wanna upgrade that to 7200rpm or SSD.

Thanks. Been searching for two days already and haven't found anything else that beats that.

Are you a UNISA student DS? They have specials on laptops for registered students.
