Im going to be a freshman in college next year, and I'm already looking into laptops for next year. I was planning on getting one shortly after graduation (near the end of June), but I don't know if it would be more beneficial to me to hop on some good deals now, or wait longer.

I'm assuming there will be all sorts of graduation sales and whatnot, but I'm not sure how good they will be.

The kind of laptop I'm looking at getting is a 17", 2-3 GB RAM, ~160GB HDD, 2.4 GHz Core 2 duo 800MHz, 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT (or better).. It will be used for everything I need in school along with playing games like cs source and others.

I was able to build a dell Inspiron 1720 with these specs for ~$1,000 and that seemed to me like a good deal. How long should I wait to get one?

Back to school sales are also good for finding deals.

I was thinking about that too, but I don't know if I'd want to wait until right before school starts because I'd want to be used to it and have all my music/programs already on it.
