both have what i want, its just whether I want to give up the keypad, which I use for hotkeys in video gaming, and the bigger screen. Battery life isnt a huge deal, I can easily plug it in at school if it gets low. Both have DDR3, which makes me happy :)

I'm still looking at a few 15"s but I really like these 2 so far.

Hey Dislexi,
Both very lovely machines there!:):XPCS::notworthy
Going for the skinning I see, makes any machine you choose even better.:D

Another thought: You could always get a USB Number keypad and just plug it in. They aren't big or expensive at all and should fit in whatever you carry your lappy in.:)

Ok, I think im set on the 17", the price difference is $40, and i would rather have the extra 2 inches for a mere $40 price difference. I'll be sure to let everyone know when i order it and how everything goes once i get it :D

question, whats the diff. between the GTX graphics card and the GT graphics card?

The GTX is notably more powerful than the GT (not sure exactly how much, but I'm thinking around 25-30%). Honestly, though, the GT is more than powerful enough for pretty much every game on the market right now, and for the extra $300+ the GTX costs, I don't find it worth the price of admission.
