macbook pro retina or asus notebook?
Jun 12, 2013

im undecided as initially i was going to get a samsung galaxy touchpad to tether my photography to then thought my pc is so freaking noisy what if i get a good notebook that will be ok for some occasional gaming, good for photoshop/LR/movies to the tv and portable for tethering( my current pc is quad core and gtx 295, 12 gig massively noisy fans)

im just tossing up weather to get the macbook pro i7, 16 gig, nvidia 650m $3199 ( can get for 2999 )
or maybe look at the much beefier(in spec and in size ) but similarly priced asus notebook Intel Core i7-4700HQ Processor 2.2GHz Turbo Boost to 3.2GHz, Intel HM86 Chipset, 16GB DDR3, 256GB SSD & 1TB Hard Disk Drive, 17.3" LED Backlit (1920x1080), 3GB nVidia GTX770 Graphics, BluRay Writer, Speakers built in Sub-Woofer, D-Sub, HDMI, mini Displayport, Wireless-N, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 4 x USB 3.0, 8 Cell Battery, Webcam, ROG Illuminated Keyboard, Windows 8 64bit,

any thoughts on what may be a better choice?

Samsung i7
