Helping Friend Buy a Laptop
So my friend wants a laptop for school...he wants it to be able to play CSS smoothly and it should be future proof for a few years.
Now from my research this seems to be a pretty good deal...am I wrong? Can anyone point me to a better one? (he's just starting college so I figure Accidental Damage protection is a great idea) I speak from experience. beer+laptop = zap
All this for $1,270.94 shipped. Seems like a great deal to me:
