At this point in time a lot of changes are happening.
The 64bit laptops are just starting to appear. It may be time to wait for a short will as the new models are just comming out. John
I've been shopping for a laptop for a while now, and everytime I think I've made up my mind, someone gives me more options to choose from and then I can't decide.
Here's what I absolutely need:
-15.4 inch widescreen, with trubrite (or whatever each brand calls it) technology (this requirement disqualifies me from looking at Dell, unfortunately)
What I primarily will use it for:
-severe multitasking - I need a processor that can handle multiple programs running at the same time.
-DVD and video file watching
-playing The Sims II (which won't even play on my current computer because of my slow processor)
-Battery life isn't really a big factor, a few hours is all I'll need. This will be replacing my current desktop.
-Weight also isn't a big factor, as long as it's not super-heavy (over 10 lbs).
I was very close to buying a Toshiba, but then I was told that I should get a Athlon processor because of my multitasking needs and Toshiba's don't come with Athlon's. Should I go with another brand in order to get this processor?
Also, I would prefer 64 bit technology (I need this laptop to last at least 4 yrs) but it's not required.
Any reccomendations or answers to my many questions would be much appreciated!
