Is the laptop pickers.
HOWEVER how will you feel about no warranty? Almost every maker will not honor the warranty unless you ship it back to the country you bought it in.
I've lost count of the sad stories.
Hey, moving to Shanghai for at least a year and my parents are buying me a new laptop before I go.
Used to own a Dell Inspiron which served me well for about four and a half years and then was overrun by viruses.
I want to get a laptop that
A) is lightweight
B) has decent battery life and good memory
C) has a camera and microphone built in
Those are pretty much my requirements. My parents are okay with spending anything less than $2,000 though I know they'd prefer to spend less than $1,000.
After China this computer is going to be used as a student computer because I'm going to law school so no crazy fancy graphics cards or media production things are needed.
I've been steered towards the new 13" MacBook Pro by most of my friends but I've heard from some of my "tech-ier" friends that I can get pretty much the same thing for less from lesser known brand-names.
If anyone can help me out with some suggestions I'd be grateful. Thanks!
