If you're looking for a laptop upgrade, Future Shop has a pretty good deal on a 15.6" notebook that you might want to take a look at. Featured in this week's flyer, they have the Dell 15.6" Laptop with Intel Core i7-2670QM, 500GB HD, 8GB RAM, Nvidia GT 525M for $699.99 -- a great price for a computer with these specs and one that should be able to handle heavy multitasking and gaming.
Despite the title saying the processor is a 2670M, some forum posters have confirmed this is a 2670QM model which means this is a second-generation quad-core i7 processor. The hard drive isn't as large as we'd have liked but there's a decent amount of RAM and the GT 525M is a 1GB dedicated graphics card that should be able to handle most games on low-medium detail settings with no problem. At 6 pounds and average battery life, we'd be weary to recommend it to daily commuters but, for the price, it's an easy buy for those with minimal travel and who always have an outlet nearby.
The laptop is currently sold out online but they're still available in-store. We'd call before rushing into a store though, as the online stock isn't always the most reliable piece of information.
The deal ends on Thursday.
