look though the end
i do not known your laptop info.
more details please
you say your pc is the end of the life
500$ is too high i think
you should compare to the new one
estimate each component's price
My laptop has almost reached the end of its life, so I'm looking into getting a new one. I'm a college student, so I mainly use my computer for surfing the internet, writing papers, doing research, etc. I have a digital camera and I take lots of pictures, so I use my computer for that also, as well as downloading and listening to music. Additionally, I like to work with Adobe Photoshop.
Hopefully that helps explain what kind of machine I'm looking for. Also, I've used mainly PCs, so my inclination is to not get an Apple, though I'm not COMPLETELY against it.
Oh, and as far as price range...to be honest, I don't have a very good sense of computer pricing. I'm thinking of maybe making $500 my maximum price--but is this unreasonable?
Any thoughts/suggestions? I appreciate any and all help!
