View Full Version : Looking for a Laptop
Aug 31, 2011, 12:25 PM
I have my first refund of my student loan coming to me in the next few weeks and I'm thinking I want to buy myself a laptop to use for school. I'm used to the speed of my desktop and would like a laptop that is atleast as quick as my desktop. I am currently enrolled to get my AABA in IT Networking. The laptop will be primarily used for school and possibly some gaming(my desktop will remain my primary computer for games). I'm looking to buy online from newegg or tigerdirect or any other reliable online store. So show me the best deal available to me. Budget is around $1000 usd.

its hard to match ur desktop's performance on $1000 laptop , got to be black friday or something, but i7quad with 460m should be closer ,over 1000 :( ,, frankly if its stays around for a while its better be good (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152266) ,, i would love to have this 570m lappy (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152286) for school

is quad core really needed with lappys?especially for a student that goes around campus sweating about battery life,,, i mean if card is not that fast anyway, might as well save on cpu by getting dual instead of quad ,,, those i5s getting me interested

my i7 quad can last for 4 hours browsing and surfing the net via wifi
if you need the power when needed, go for the quad.
