BUT there are some thousand models that would fit this one. I'd look at the nice 14 inch aluminum Samsung too. Why? Open the lid and in under 5 seconds it's ready to use.
Hi, I am planning to buy a laptop within a range of $600 preferably Dell, HP, lenovo or Sony vaio. I am a multi-tasker and generally open too many browser page, word documents, pdf at once. Please suggest me any model which has i5 or i3 processor, atleast 13 inch screen, 4GB RAM, min 300 GB memory, inbuilt webcam.
Before you shell out $100+ for MS-Office, ask yourself this: With all the time it takes to develop freeware applications that have 3D intensive graphics and are much more difficult to develop than a word processing program, why does Microsoft get away with charging so much money for a word processing program that doesn't really have any different functionality than it did 10 years ago? The answer: There is no good reason for this. Don't buy MS-Office for word processing or creating spreasheets, and instead go download Openoffice at openoffice.org- it is a FREE and FULL office suite with all the functionality that you probably will ever need, AND it's compatible with all the office file types (.doc, .xls, etc...)
You might also want to check out the Outlet sites some manufacturers have, for example, HP and Dell, where "refurbished machines" are offered at significant discounts. These can be reworks, warranty repairs, discontinued models and such like (they rarely say which!). They usually come with a full manufacturer warranty but do check that on any you like the look of. Or try the retail stores for ex-demo units (usually discontinued models), which should also have at least the balance of warranty.
