Still comparing the value of an automobile to electronics.

so how about buying a honda instead or mercedes?


oh wait lets all buy toyota's instead of a ferrari? i mean its just a car right and u go places! and besides u can always wait next year for the next year version car! your car will be thousands of dollars worth less!



Alright let's be rude to posters offering solid advice, and ignore scales of value in the obvious differences between a car and computer for the sake of justifying a stupid purchase.

Buy the damn thing then, I don't care. I've bought my fair share of stupid unnecessary **** too, we all have. But if you aren't going to actually take any advice without getting snarky, what is the point of this topic? To let everyone know you will have a dual GPU laptop? Grats.

u can compare alot of things really..



buy new shoes, reselll it for alot more,
i bought jordans resold them as new and sold them for alot more. because i didnt wear them, if i did wore them i would still resell them more for what it's worth but not as high as i would want.

jordan 11 space jams, $200 when it came out, easily sell upwards over $300-$350 or even more than that to right buyer, brand new? i can easily sell for over $350 because its new never been worn.

I don't think you can go wrong with one or two 7970M's. With one, it'll last 2 years easily at which time you can just upgrade to the latest GPU for a lot less than a new laptop. But it'll only become about as fast as two 7970M's now.

With game requirements not being terribly high anymore, I'd say it's better to go with the one GPU path.

i see, the 7970m should last a long time,seeing this is coming from someone who plays consoles game most of his gaming life if i must say.

So what you're saying is, you plan on not using this laptop/using it then selling it at higher than what you paid. Or when you sell it in 2 years it will sell for close to that right?
