Have to kick the habit
Okay guys, here is the situation, I am going into college and need a BASIC laptop for data storage and studying at night. No video games as my desktop is far more superior than any laptop I can get.
The main problem is that I have a "need or fetish whatever you want to call it" in wanting to own all the new gadgetry, while this time I need just the basics. I know basically what I need, but I do not know the levels of integrated graphics, what can safely run DVDs and still have good quality ect.
Basically it will be a portable studying item that I can use for looking at typed notes or working on small projects for school. I need it to be able to play DVD's with decent quality and be able to run at the very least Macromedia Fireworks and Dreamweaver (maybe photoshop).
I am looking for something in the range of $600-900. I was thinking a Dell laptop with a dual-core or maybe HP or Toshiba.
So, in summarization it needs to have a good battery, good processor, at LEAST 512 (hopefully around 1 gig) of ram, 80 GB hard drive, and at the very least able to play DVDs with little to no quality loss.
Thanks guys for all of your help.
