Hey guys and gals of notebookforums... First time poster, long time lurker I've been looking around for a solid performing notebook for gaming, processing, watching movies, etc. just about everything a computer is used for. I was planning on buying a Dell e1505 and live with the x1400 (i personally dont think it would be that bad of a video card) but i heard about Asus notebooks and have decided recently on purchasing a S96j. I've done my research and i'm gonna buy a barebones from geared2play being the cheapest without salestax (i'm from cali). I just purchased an 80gb hitachi SATA 7200 RPM hard drive off ebay and i'm gonna buy a CPU soon as well. Finally i'll get some ram from new egg... Here is where my main question applies: I wanna get 1 gig cuz i dont think i need 2 at the moment and i'm not sure whether or not 533mhz is practically faster than 667mhz ram. So i need some mentoring or advice whether or not i should go with 533 which is about 10-15 dollars cheaper or pay the extra to get 667... Additionally, i would like to know if the S96j will fall in price when the Z96j is released... Lastly, is the keyboard of high quality? i've read reviews which stated that it was alright and ones which claim it is superb... i would just like some more input from other S96J owners out there. Well thats about all; sorry for the long post and thanks for any input!
