Hello and welcome to this week’s episode of the Laptop Buyer’s guide, where we now get into the mid-range market and see what our money buys us this week. There are no surprises here – notebook vendors still haven’t learned that SSDs should come with laptops by default when you’re spending this much money. But, you know, there’s probably a bunch of bean counters who tell the CEO that they need to save money on their product development and assembly, not offer consumers better choices when the rest of the market is equally happy to do the same. I wish someone would be brave enough to be the first to do it, but it looks like they’re all waiting for something. A SSD price war? Who knows.
