are going to be about the same. They will all be made with cheaper components. There are many laptops that meets what you want. I suggest you go to best buy and try them out.
I need a new laptop for high school that's under $500.
I have researched and do have some laptops on my mind, but I want more input from others.
It has to have:
• Memory- 4gb or more
• CD/DVD drive
• Good battery life
• At least 1 usb port
I will be mainly using the laptop for
- office use(word processing, power point, excel and web surfing, microsoft word)
- going on social networking sites, checking e-mail etc.
