What are you going to use it for?
Without that I can only suggest you try a friendly machine like the Apple.
I want to buy a laptop but don't know anything about computers... I went through through the tutorial on cnet and found it helpful but still very obsolete with all the computers available... I want it to be really good so that I won't have to upgrade anything fast... I asked at Fry's and Best Buy but they all seemed mean and didn't help at all... they just told me that I should get the most expensive one there... my budget is between a 1,000 and 2,000 hopefully it's enough to get a good one... there was one that I like it was a fujitsu and it was all white with a shock sensor and a built in finger print reader but that was it... any help would be greatly appreciated...
