Re: Purchasing a Laptop for College
I did not have good luck with HP. First with all in one printer and then HP notebook, both had problem only right after 1 year anniversary.
On the other hand, I had very experience with dell. I had it at work both notebook and desktop as well.
I am looking one notebook for myself right now. I like mobility so weight is an issue. I found that you can configure Dell Inspiron 1420 series for about $900-$1000 with dedicated graphic card, 3 GB ram, high resolution screen, bluetooth, N wireless card, 250GB hard drive, good processor etc. It like 5 lbs.
Other notebook I am looking at is apple notebook from their refurbished products list and from there it can be bought under $1000. In my state there is a sales tax holiday in 6 weeks and I am planning on buying new notebook computer then. Till then I will look around to see what is available.
