The system board on my 2 year old compaq recently died so I am in the market for a new laptop. Would it be wise to wait till after the holidays or just buy now? I need to get working on my dissertation but could probably get by if super deals after xmas are expected.
I do cpu intensive gis/remote sensing work and was thinking the intel core duo 2 is the right way to go, any thoughts? I wa not very impressed with the lifespan of my presario and am a bit weary of hp/compaq becuase of this but did I just have bad luck? Anyother brand recommendations?
