don't like macs?

I had a Mac once. One of those big fancy $2,000 ones. I tried using it, didn't like it, never turned it on again.

Don't know if it helps... but imo Asus is the way to go when buying a laptop (if you don't want a mac) Their computers are great, and service is very good, plus (at least in the Netherlands) they have a standard 2 year warranty (most other big brands are 2 years)
I still use a Asus as a backup to my MBP.

Its going to by my next choice when i graduate college. Asus makes a lot of the motherboards in the commuters you'll find, and they are just killer computers. If you are going to buy it from best buy, I would pick it up soon. They are switching out all of their computers for new models, which probably means better specs but a higher price tag.

I can't afford it right now. I'm about to put a down payment for invisalign among other things :/

I will definitely be checking out ASUS for my future laptop shopping, though! I used to almost always exclusively just use ASUS mobo's for all my custom rigs.

I could probably get by with 32 but I take about double that.

I got Invisalign in college. LOVED IT! Hurts horrible on the first day you change the trays so I learned to put them in at night, take an Advil PM, and go right to bed. Made it more bearable.

Back on topic... The ASUS laptop does look amazing! All that space. It would probably take me a while to kill it. Cheaper to buy a $1200 computer and use it for three years than two 750 computers I only get 1-1.5 years of use out of... I wonder if I can get one for free somehow. Hrm....

Do you guys keep your RAW images forever?

Yes, the keepers anyway. 100+ weddings all fit on one $100 drive, and I have multiple copies.
