Laptop for College
i know there are tons of threads bout this, but ppl won't respond if i post on an old one
my brother is going to college, and my dad has given me the duty of finding a good laptop for him. we can spend about $1000 on it, but nothing over, we are mainly looking for around 800-900.
I am stuck though, b/c looking for a laptop compared to a desktop is way harder. there are tons of brands to get
my dad seems intent on getting one from a PC magazine, such as Dell's or HP's. but i'm not so sure these are the best for money. i've been lookin on newegg and tigerdirect (which has refurbished, which i dont want) but i dunno what to get.
heres around what i'm looking for:
around 60 gig HD, 40 acceptable but 60 = great
also some type of pentium or amd, NO CELERON
nothing else matters too much else
Anyone sugest anything? how are acers?
