Last night my hand grazed a jagged plastic edge on my laptop where some of the trim had fallen off, and a jagged piece of plastic actually managed to puncture through the flat of my finger nail and embed itself there- I needed tweezers to slide it out. I have never, in my life, seen blood come out the flat side of my fingernail. Also, holy crap that hurt.
This thing, which is a DELL (Yeah Dell, I blame you) already started out as the lowest build quality of any laptop I'd ever purchased, I only tolerated it because replacing it seemed like too big a PITA, and it actually functioned well as a computer. Now that we've crossed the "worth it for a new machine" threshold, I'm a man without a brand.
There's some beautiful looking Razer laptops out there, but their total non-upgradability (and the fact that their highest end 15" machine costs $2.8K and has 512GB SSD & 8GB Ram) is kind of a dealbreaker.
On the other hand, the 14-inch alienware and 15" MSI gaming laptops look equally nice for about a grand less, but weigh enough that you could use one to fend off a home intruder. MSI in particular weighs in at an impressive 8.5 pounds for the slightly-higher-end, greater-than-1920x1080 machines.
It's a good thing I only inflict a good laptop-quest on myself every 3-4 years or so. There's WAY too much "almost what I want, one fatal flaw." It's maddening. Utterly maddening.
