I'd go with something like an Acer Travelmate 4400. 15.4" widescreen, AMD Turion CPU, Radeon X700 video, 100GB 5400RPM HD (very nice), zipzoomfly.com usually has the best price on them ($1200?). If you want a faster Turion or other options check out this notebook:
If you want something really small and light, these things are really neat:
but I'd put up with the extra 2-1/2 pounds for the much larger screen and better GPU of the MSI-1029.
I'm looking for a notebook computer. Can anyone give a good recommendation? I will be using it for school, misc. work functions, etc. Accounting and finance will be most of school work; including powerpoint presentations.
Thanks in Advance
