1. An aversion to Vista
While you will find some dis all the usual makes the 599 buck dv6910us I picked up last week seems nice enough. Can you supply links and a bit more about budget.
Arrgh! my brain is about to explode because of all the options associated with choosing a quality laptop.
My old one is a compaq v2000z and its getting old. It's still fast but it is now a desktop only computer the display and touchpad mouse quit working a few days ago(I need mobility in my life or bad things happen)
I need help choosing a quality laptop
I'd like to get a Sony Vaio N350E/W But i can't find any info on a good review of this computer. I cannot stand slow computers so i need some factors narrowed down for me.
Here's what i do with the computer-
Word/Microsoft office 2007
video editing and capture
light gaming- battlefield 1942
CAD- Autocad 2009
And this is in the order of use-
internet - every day
office 2007- every day
virtual machines- weekends
video editing- about every other week
Specs i'd like-
1-2 gb of ram
~2ghz dual core processor- AMD or intel?
Which processor is better for what i do?- Pentium dual core or Turion 64 X2?
I'll be using xp and Ubuntu Linux as the main operating system. Vista will be removed after it arrives.
I can't decide between an HP dv5z, a discount sony vaio, or something from the Acer line.
I don't even know where to start if i think about a Toshiba or gateway.
All inputs will appreciated and will save me lots of stress and confusion.
