Start with the laptop pickers at the top of this forum and see what you find. Remember you didn't reveal a country.
I currently have a Toshiba L-series laptop, my first laptop, that is 3 years old. I've decided to use a laptop as my main computer (selling my iMac *sniff*sniff*).
I use my computer daily, mostly for writing, internet and iTunes. I do tend to store photos on my computer. No gaming. But I do play dvds and watch tv online e.g. Hulu
I want a 15" screen, webcam (don't have one now), and am guessing 4GB is sufficient (only have 2 GB now).
I don't think I'll be hooking it up to my tv so HDMI isn't important (and what is the purpose of doing that? I'm not being sarcastic
Because I've only had a Toshiba and have heard that "Dell is hell" and HP stinks, I figure I should stay with Toshiba. However, I'm open-minded.
Spec-wise, what do you think of this particular Toshiba? I don't want to spend more than $600.00.
I've tried to educate myself (browsing the forum here) about various specs and the pros/cons but I'm by no means an expert. I didn't know that some laptops heat more than others, for example. I know my current Toshbia gets very hot!
Anyway, any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks so much!
