Choice 1: Dell inspiron 1464: 14" display (bad for grapchis :() Core i5 2.5 ghz processor with 3mb L3 cache ( thats sounds cool) 512 MB ATI Raedon 4330 HD graphics (Low end graphic card for me) 6 cell battery with very less backup :( about 2 hours maximum (very very very bad for me) no express card slot :( no esata port :( 1.3 mb webcam :( only supports 7 cards where studio 15 supports 8 i hate its keyboard Choice 2: Studio 1555 15.6" dispaly (good one) core i3 processor 3mb l3 cache 512 MB ATI 4570 HP grachis( mid range graphic card for me) 9 cell battery wid about 5.5 hrs backup (I am a traveler) no bluetooth :( everything good but the processor is pretty low end than that in inspirion 1464 Please suggest me a good laptop. I'll be using my laptop especially for graphics and 3d rendering. But I don't render always, its occasional. Only thing that lets me turn my face towards inspirion is its processor, core i5. Inspirion has nothing, no esata no express card etc etc.. Which I will definitely need later. If core i3 and core i5 doesn't matters much then i would definately head for core i3 dell studio or even a core 2 duo T6600 2.2 Ghz..

If you are willing to put a little more money out there. You can get the type of processor you want listed in option one, for option two. They would charge the differance for it though, but they do custom-build those things. Personally I'd check out your costmizable options for option two. You may be suprised.

Looking at your profession, I think choice 2 is good but the only thing is the i3 processor ! Otherwise the other specifications are really good. Good battery life. Choice 1 is worthless other than the processor! Anyway, best of luck on getting your machine!

considering the core i5 processor in Inspirion, I won't be rendering the 3d graphics everytime. I'll also using my notebook for documents, web browsing, multimedia, movies, some programming, etc. As you said, I also got my heart and mind fixed upon dell studio with better graphics card, better screen size (as a desktop replacement too), better I/O ports, better battery life, better design as well with cool slot loading disk drive ;)
