Make your best suggestions with reasons please.
I need a general use laptop, I like the idea of alot of hard drive space and would like it to be fast of course. This will basically be a laptop to handle business and play when I travel. I'm not concerned with weight or size (I do like larger screens) so don't think it has to be micro sized.
consider DELL or some taiwan brand.. they are relatively cheaper for same config..
of course, IBM is reliable but a higher price..
btw, as you may need to travel around, the warranty is a big issue for you and that it is very important for Laptop. Look for some longer warranty period ot pay for it is worthwhile.
Well, I recommend somthing like Zepto, but I am not sure you can buy those outside Denmark, so maybe not great idea..
I'd like to thank everyone for their responses.
I will be looking over the suggestions carefully, and I would love more suggestions if anyone has them.
I'd kill for a 2g macbook pro but it's 2500 bucks.
Dont go for HP, They have horrible customer service. Here in Quebec, They dont have replacement parts for HP Products and they are more expensive to procure.
try checking out the asus range, theyre a brand that i think is pretty reliable
You probably don't want to play tolling games on a laptop that is micro, so I suggest something like a Dell.
On the Dell side of things, what has anyone heard about the dual core e1505?
i want to buy one too
but it is very expensive i think
i will buy it later~
If you plan on using the computer for anything more than email and/or having it retain it's value longer than a week you should really consider the new Power Macs with the Intel processor. They are faster than any crap PC you can buy and you will adapt to them easily now that you can run Windows XP on them!!
If you do anything that will require processor speed the Apple is the only way to go. You won't regret it.
Dell is hell when it comes to customer support, so I'd recommend you go to BestTechie or something if you're going to get a Dell. Also, I'd say if all possible, get a new case or something if you're getting an XPS, like most dell computers, they just aren't as good looking as a Mac notebook, or a Lenovo notebook.
I would personally reccomend you get a notebook from either Lenovo or Apple since:
1. They have a good quality, Lenovo boasts battery life like no other Notebook, and Apple packs a punch with the processors they choose.
2. Customer support. Lenovo and Apple, unlike Dell, have decent customer support, which can make all thie difference.
3. Looks. If you've seen the toughbook or the XPS, you'll see these brands are very ugly and have stupid looking bells and whistles(XPS has large blue lights on the back of the screen which really are a waste), while Apple and Lenovo will give you decency in crisp looks that preform just as well.
Try Toshiba. It's a nice company if you use Windows. If not Windows, go with Mac.
go to the city to get a laptop then youll get cheeper prices! yea yea!
