Just picked up a new G53sx the other day at Micro center and must say I am really enjoying things, Up to now. lol No, nothing is broken or wrong, I just came from Best Buy where they have the G74sx for the exact same price I paid and I am having thoughts now that perhaps I should return the 15" and go and get the 17" from Best Buy since it is the same price and pretty much the same configuration. IE: both have 8gig ram, both have 1TB HDD (Probably 2 500 gig on 17 as well) Both are i7 2670QM but the 17" says it is @ 2ghz while the 15.6 says it is at 2.2 ghz? Not sure that is going to matter much if at all. Both come with the 2 gig geforce 560m. Plus the 17" has the extra space for num keypad....
Model I havefrom micro center is G53sx-RH71
Model at best buy G74SX-BBK11
I dunno, kind of think I need to take my SSD out put the 500 gig back in and get myself over to Best buy and buy this and return the 15.6".....
Any suggestions? Is the lose of .2ghz really going to matter or be noticeable? Are there negatives to switching to the 17" as it will mainly be hooked up to a 24" monitor and rarely see any movement at all. Or are there other pluses and minus' I am not aware of at this time... Any input from those who know more from experience is appreciated.
