hey guys (and gals), I currently have an Envy 15, with some pretty high-end specs. I'm not a power user, but I do like to game a bit. WoW and Starcraft 2 (and Diablo 3 when it comes out) are the games I play. I also use my laptop for work, a lot. So I'm in front of it for hours a day, sadly. Reason I want to switch are annoyance and luxury factors. I have the 1366x768 screen and it just doesn't cut it. The laptop also generates a fair amount of heat, and black screens randomly. Also, the quick launch keys on the left hand side of the keyboard are a constant source of frustration. The specs I have are i7 1.6ghz, 4gb ram, hd 5830, dual ssd's. Ideally, I'd keep almost the same stuff into a Macbook, but the video card is a 512MB Nvidia. My DV6t HP has the same exact card, but it is 1GB (don't know why the MBP is 512). My question, apart from obvious benchmarks, how does that card hold up for gaming? Is it just better to go under bootcamp? Secondly, and most importantly, the buyer's guide on this site rates the MBP as a neutral buy. I don't want to shell out 2.5k for something that will be rendered obsolete in 2 months (rather then the 6-8 months we can get). Is is still worth buying today, or should I hold onto what I have and wait for a next refresh (which is rumored to be when?) And finally.. i have a "slice" battery for my envy which extends the battery an extra few hours. I know and sort of accept the MBP battery is sealed in. What do people do for extended periods of battery use? Is there an external one? Many thanks for reading all this, and thank you in advance.
