So I’ve decided to buy a laptop. Just got myself a Zen-Micro and feel that my current desktop at home might not be up to adequately assist me in burning cds etc…
I did some searching around, and boy are there plenty of choices out there - I’m stumped. I have no clue as what to look for, where to start, what’s good, what isn’t…so I turn to you guys.
Here’s what I’m looking for;
a relatively fast laptop (512MB or higher) with 40GB or more HD
a screensize of 15" or more
I will most likely only use it for games and burning cds to my MP3 player
Total price below or just about $1K
So what are you guys using out there or can you recommend for my needs? What make/model should I go with?
I don’t know about eMachine laptops, but their desktops have a lot of problems. They are much cheaper, though, so if shoddier hardware and lots of pre-installed software doesn’t bother you, then it could be a good route.
What kind of games do you play? If you mean of the solitaire/free-cell variety, almost anything will do. If you want to play the latest and greatest, it might be harder to find one sub-$1k that’ll really work well.
