please help me find a laptop

by ssvang / September 4, 2006 9:05 AM PDT

I'm a student, and I want to replace my desktop pc with a laptop. Please help me! I don't know much about computers, but I do know that I spend A LOT of time on the net, listening to music, and using Word. I'm mp3 crazy, and store digi photos and other crap like mad, so it'd be nice to have a good amount of hard drive space. I also have a thing where I can't stand how long it takes for some computers to load up their pages. So I'd need whatever-it's-called that would help with that. And I really hate it when the memory goes low, and the computer goes nuts. Also, I've heard some buzz about Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Do I need/want this? I don't really know what laptops go for, but I don't want to spend more than $2k. Can someone please help point me to some laptops I'd like? Thanks!

If your looking for a media-friendly laptop then look at HP. Many of HP's laptops have Core 2 Duo options. Their highest model, the Pavilion dv9000, is only a bit over 1k.

Thanks. A friend told me to check out Dell. What do you guys think of them?
