Hi shawn777,I chose a factory refubished IBM T22 ThinkPad to complement my Desktop.My keyboard skills are not that good but I found the IBM keyboard easy to use.Do you have internet access?a search will provide a wide range of laptops, and prices in the US are far better than the UK.
I go to college and need a laptop but there are so many that it has become more of a headache than anything remotely fun. If anybody can suggest anything, it would be great.
What I need:
1) Thin and light: 6.5 lbs or less
2) Average of 3.5-4 hrs of battery life
3) module bay: cd/dvd and floppy
4) 1.3 ghz or higher
5) 40gb of memory
6) 256mb or higher in RAM
7) Decent size or better keyboard: I'll be typing a lot and this is just as strong factor as processor speed.
And wireless internet connection
I have looked and looked, and so far, the 600m looks really inticing but I'm afraid of size of the keyboard. Then there is also the dell latitude d600. But my computer knowledge is limited to only what I can read and magazines that come my way. If you know any other company's or models notebooks, please suggest it.
