manufacturers know how to price their products and don't really try to undersell that much (aside from sales and freebies). dell's $1200 laptop will be just as fast and feature rich as HP's $1200. keep an eye out for sales, or get the one that has the specific feature you want, or (all things being equal) just appeals to you the most.
Hi. My desktop finally died and I'm in search of a laptop. I'll be using it to surf the net, watch videos, store and share photos, create documents and watch movies. I doubt I will play any video games. I'd like a 16" or 17" screen and enough memory for photos, although I will save them to an external hd.
My desktop was a Dell and I had it for five years. I can get a Dell or anything else but I will want to make sure the customer service is good.
Any suggestions? My price range is up to $1200. Thanks!!
