There are so many choices from which to pick. It doesn't really seem as though your needs are that great so it should be easy to find something for well under 1k. A good friend of mine just purchased an I-5 Toshiba from Office Depot for about 600.00 and it does what he needs and then some, he is a Vetrinarian and hooks it to several external devices that he uses in his practice, it is really pretty impressive. So there is a thought, I thought it was pretty hard to beat for the money. Good luck!!
So I've looked on this board trying not to repeat an earlier question, but haven't come across anything so here it goes.
I'm looking for a new laptop under $1000 that will be used almost exclusively for word processing, email, using the internet, and listening to music. No gaming. My main request is that it is reliable and somewhat rigid. I want it to last. I've looked and looked but there are just too many options.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
