Hello all,

I been thinking of getting one. After seeing some good prices/ specs from PB Technologies promotions.

Just shopping around abit now... Does anyone know of any good/ better deals running at the moment?

Preferably one with enough spec to run Solidworks.

$700 - $1500 area maybe. I will spend more if there is a good discount etc.

Is there a reason Toshiba and Asus stands out above the rest?

They are generally more reliable, and customer support is pretty good.

What screen size would you like?

Bear in mind a larger screen will mean more weight
