Help me decide...please....
Will be starting masters program in computer science in fall 2013.
Background was not cs (it was math).Considering the gazelle pro. Also- is the matte screen really worth it? Will be using external monitor most of the time. Also, do you think this build will be more than enough for future endeavors. Plan on doing 'regular computer stuff' and programming a lot... thank you in advance.
