    It's not everyday you can convince me a laptop can stay up to the task for 5 years (with my insane gaming and video editing usage), but this one has and I still have no need to replace it.

    I am planning to change mine soon, i heard lots of good things about Asus laptops.

    To all of you Bache T, Iran Esteg Inter, Babr, CM, and even Playboy thank you all for you tips. BT jan, I actually am very impressed with the Asus model GL 753. I like that the price is only $1,299 very manageable. Every laptop has it's pro's and con's. ASUS GL 760 Pro With the ASUS the pro's are Comfortable, RGB-backlit keyboard; Keeps cool while gaming; Vivid display; Above-average battery life. Con, bulky, finniky touch pad, according to the editor's review and overall 3.5 out of 5 stars.
    My top five are
    1-Macbook pro, the $2000 model. I will wait for the 2018 when the touch bar keyboard comes out if I decide to get it.

    2 XPS and Alienware, Dell both are very comparable. Alienware is slightly better for gaming but XPS is better for business and more professional looking. It actually looks like the macbook pro. $1,000 entry level model.

    4-Asus GL760 $1,300

    5-MSI, entry level $1500 built exclusively for gaming.

    Mine is connected to two giant 27" monitors. It's essentially a very powerful desktop that can travel with me. I take mine on road trips in my RV and it's simply awesome to have my entire home computing package with me thousands of miles away from home!
    if you aint going to move it, then why get a laptop ? I have a desktop i build 5 years ago, it ROCKS ! I travel with my laptop and weight is a huge factor for me.

    Captain, thank you, thank you very much for all these passionate years you have given to your Real Madrid to my Real Madrid. I will not forget you because, among other reasons, I do not want to forget you. No matter where you go know that I love you , Real Madrid loves you. HALA MADRID
    Some find their Mecca in Saudi Arabia, Some in Palestine and some in Vatican, I find mine in Madrid and I call it “The Estadio Santiago Bernabéu”

    Because the cost was almost the same. A desktop with my laptop's specs would've cost only $200 less at that time. The laptop has a monitor and is easy to put in a bag to take elsewhere.

    I read an article once that said unlike 5-10 years ago, laptops rarely move these days. I tend to believe that.

    Arash T, you showed some very nice cars but let me know what you think of this bad boy I will get one day. Now new these trucks cost $80,80000 K but I am going to get the 2500 Ram Cummins mega cab, 4 by 4 probably Laramie model or Big Horn and you can get one between 35,000-45,000 a couple of years used. You can get the 3500 but then you would be sipping gas, even with the diesel because that is a one ton truck built for daullies on the back. Again, this particilar model will be in the 70's new so you might want to get it a few years used. The Mega Cab Laramie 2500 includes

    1-6.7 L Cummins diesel engine, this will replace the previous 5.9 L
    2-Payload on this puppy is 4,000 lbs
    3-An important thing you need to know, towing 15,000 pounds. Bonus, not only you have 4 pin but you have a seven pin wearing harness along with a tow hitch and two back up cameras one on the hitch and one on your back window.
    4- Engine-This is hands down the best engine in the world, you are talking 6.7 L Cummins engine, over 370 HP and over 800 ft of torque! No matter what you are towing you will have no problems
    5-4 by 4 and off road ability
    6-You won't get this information in the video. The gas will not kill you because I asked my friend who drove 8 hours to from L.V to S.L.C to jot down the mileage. When not towing, you can get over 25 MPG on the highway, around 15- in the city combined 20 Compare that to most smaller truck models Ram 1500, F150, Chevy Silverado , Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan with the 5.7 L Hemi, you are getting 17 combined mpg 15/19 combined 17 mpg. Keep in mind that gas here in L.V is about 50-75 cents cheaper than So Cal. That is even better gas mileage than most mid sized suv's and I will always have a very efficient 4 door sedan.
    Inside the 2500, it does not feel like a truck. It is a very smooth ride, very quiet for a diesel, not like you think like back in the day, it is comparable to the smaller 1/2 ton gas trucks. Inside leather seats, heated seats, all of the amenities you want.

    This is my problem with nice luxury or sports cars like Aston Martin's or Lamborgini's, Rolls Royce etc. They are beautiful there is no doubt about it and fun to drive, without a doubt but you have several problems 1- Cost to buy, even used those cars are expensive. 2- Insurance 3- Gas, 4-maintenance 5-depreciation etc. If you have the money to not only buy one but keep up with the maintenance then more power to you.
    At least with this, you let the other guy take the hit and then you can enjoy that truck for a very long time because that engine can easily go over 500,000 miles.

    As for the decision on the computer, I am going to go with the XPS 15 and also with the money I save, I can get an I pad Pro 3 both in 2018. Apple will raise the price for their new models $200 so the $2200 one will now be $2,400. I was willing to pay $2,000-2,2200 but with that price I can three three things
    1-Dell XPS 15 -$900-1000 depending on sale
    2-I pad pro 3-$700
    3-Wait a year and get an I phone or Samsung for around $500-600
    If these are on sale
    If some of these are on sale $50-100, I can take part of that money, add a couple of hundred and get a PS4 Pro as well.

    This is the 2018 E 250 D-Should get an upgrade boost of 20HP to 190, fresh new look and I am projecting this to cost $60,000 new. My good friend got one two years old 2014 for $30,00 and my dad got one one year old 2016 for $45,000. If you wait a couple of years, you can get this one for $60,000 and I will probably sell my Camry in 4-5 years and still get $10,000. For $35,000-45,000 I can get my truck and for $30,000 the Benz, of course these deals are in cash. At least used it won't break the bank and it is very efficient on the gas.
    For $75,000 max, I can get my nice truck and car that I will have for the next 8-10 years. I am planning on getting my Nevada Real Estate and then Business Broker's license. I cannot take my clients out to show houses on a truck or a Toyota Camry, that is what the Benz will be for. Then, when I want to drive around the city, drive four hours north to Brian, Head Ut and ski or go off roading, then I can take the 2500 Ram Cummins.

    ASUS were top two makers of motherboards. Haven't had any experience with their NB. I will check them out.

    Still liking Toshiba's the best.

    What would be ASUS version of a super portable I think they smaller units used ATOM CPU or comparable for a while.
