I'd try the laptop picker at the top of this forum and stay with i3 or better CPUs, your preferred size screen, 4GB RAM and Windows 7. If you like the Apple, try one at their stores.
Good evening! I was wondering what kind of lap top would be good for me. I am looking for a laptop that will be the primary computer in my home after I graduate. I will basically use it for surfing the internet, Facebook and Email, maybe downloading a few songs, rarely, and using the programs that will come on Microsoft Office 2010, like powerpoint, office word, excel, and publisher. So, pretty basic stuff but I want something reliable. I have been looking at things like the Sony laptop, the L series in Lenovo, and some things on Apple. But I am open to any ideas. My use of the computer mostly consists of checking email, Facebook, and using the Microsoft programs. Thanks in advance!
