I'm with everyone else here. After owning a 9860, you DO NOT want a laptop with with this much weight. I'm also in college and carring my 12lb laptop was a pain. Yeah the power was sweet and the graphics is nice but a 30-45 minute battery life rendered me in actually doing any work mobile.
The weight and heat ruin the fun of owning a laptop unless you keep it stationary. Buy something light with plenty of battery is my suggestion.
