The general thing I watch out for when buying a laptop has to do with 
the graphics card.
In order to increase the battery life laptop manufacturers lobotomize 
the graphics cards, reducing the core and gram frequency and
turning off half the gram. However they don't do a good job of telling 
you that.
So the card they advertise usually reads like the card you would 
normally receive for a workstation, but it isn't.
Read carefully.
