All or fair laptops. I'd take the 250GB drive and remember none are good for games.
I'm getting ready to buy a new laptop and I know absolutely nothing about computers. All I really need is something I can use for watching movies, using windows media player, microsoft office for writing, using itunes, internet explorer and youtube and something that is relatively light weight. I also want to stay around 500-600 but absolutely no more than 700. So I was in office depot the other day and saw they were having a sale and I narrowed it down to three computers. Compaq Presario C769US, Sony VAIO VGN-NR330E/S, and the Toshiba Satellite A205-S5843. They all have Intel Pentium Dual-Core and 1.73 GHz whatever that means, but I'm told that's good. All have 2GB memory. The compaq has 250GB hard drive, the other two have 160GB. I need advice on which one is the best or if none of them are any good. Thanks.
