What I don't understand is why one can't just get a laptop without a loud
fan that doesn't cost so much. I'd gladly pay $300 for a laptop as powerful
as my 5 year old one... which, of course, isn't worth $300.

I think it makes sense to concentrate on the audio side of things. Not
saying the display doesn't matter.

Thanks,
