I'll be running Finale 2008, Ableton Live, Kontakt2, Ivory Italian Grand, B4 and Garritan Personal Symphony.

I don't care about onboard audio or video much, but I do need a decent-sized HDD, 3 Gb of RAM and (of course) quiet.

Long battery life is a plus.

Budget <=$750

Here are my two options, ATM

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510- $650
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6834146441

Gateway T1623- $700
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6834101152

Thoughts? Opinions? Abuse? :D

Well heck. Lots o' traffic in here :lol:

The price on the Gateway came down to meet the Lenovo, so I think I'll go that a' way.
