Help me choose a laptop

by jbonnefsc / January 11, 2010 7:06 AM PST


I'm looking for a laptop. I'm not really set on a brand, but here is what I was hoping for:

Less than $600
Smaller than 15-inches
More than 3+ hours of battery life
3-4gb of RAM
minimum of 160 Gb Harddrive
Decent Graphics
Windows 7
Something at least moderately sleek looking

I've searched and tried, but I get so bogged down.

Is ASUS good?
Should I just stick with HP?
How about the ACER stuff?

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
