I found another at best buy here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Toshiba+-+Satellite+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B2+Duo+Processor+-+Midnight+Breeze/9576942.p?skuId=9576942&id=1218127626133
This looks like a great deal to me, but I'm not an expert so I may be missing something big. For one, I do not know much about Toshiba laptops though I do have a couple friends who say they have no complaints with theirs. Any opinions on how these four laptops compare?
So I have these laptops I have kinda narrowed it down to:
HP G60-440us Notebook PC - Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4300 2.1GHz, 3GB DDR2, 320GB HDD, DVDRW, 16"
SONY VAIO NW Series VGN-NW228F/B NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T4300(2.10GHz) 15.5" 4GB Memory DDR2 800 250GB HDD 5400rpm
Gateway MC7833u NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T6400(2.00GHz) 16" XGA 4GB Memory DDR2 667 500GB HDD 5400rpm.
I'm looking for some help in finding/explaining the main differences. The Gateway has the better processor, right? Or are they pretty similar? I'm not very experienced with laptops so I would like some information or opinions on the differences among the brands, like I've always thought of Sony as a little above the rest as far as a reliable, quality brand for a laptop. I don't know much about Gateway laptops.
The laptop will not need a lot of space as there won't be much media or programs on it. It is mostly going to be a basic use computer, but it should be decently fast.
And yes, I just noticed that two of these laptops aren't even available considering it is the day after black Friday, but I still would like to see some responses to educate myself a little more.
