Which Laptop should I buy?
Buy a system that will do everything you need now. You might like to allow for future needs (for example, the next version of your favourite software may require additional memory to run as fast).
Buying a quality brand such as Dell, HP/Compaq, Toshiba or Sony will minimise the chance of any hardware problems and if you do have a hardware problem, parts should not be a problem.
New or Second Hand?
You can save a fair bit of money buying second hand. Often, you can pick up a machine with additional accessories (extra memory, wireless, carry bag, docking station, extended warranty etc) which you have to pay extra for if you buy new. Choose a seller with a good feedback rating and look for a machine that is still under warranty from the manufacturer. Then if there are any problems, you can have the machine repaired locally without paying for return postage. Compaq/HP and Dell warranties are still valid even if the machine is sold to a new buyer.
A friend in Melbourne bought a second hand Dell machine and there was a problem with the battery recharging. Fortunately, the warranty was still current and she logged a call with Dell. Within 24 hours there was someone onsite. The engineer could not tell immediately which item was at fault so the main board, the battery and the AC power supply were all replaced!
