Hi All,

I will like to buy I notebook for my study use as well as watching movie.
Sometime i will also need to have video meeting.
My budget is less than $1500.
For my study, i will be doing some Java Programming.
Can any one advice which model i should buy?

Thanks.
I'm also doing java programming, so my advice to you is get the better spec'd models.

I bought K43SV - i7 quad, 8GB ram, a 640gb Hdd which I swopped with SSD

But the main thing is the 8GB memory.

You will not want to be doing code compilations with low ram/slow cpu, so please avoid ultrabooks like MBA which has a 4GB maximum RAM.
