What's the Story?
I'm in the market for a new laptop. I've been happy with my HP Pavilion dv6000 but I need something that will run 64-bit Vista (I'm giving in!), a little more horsepower, and more hard drive space (so I can dual-boot with XP). Most of my clients still have Windows XP but I'm starting to see more Vista PCs and Windows 7 is just around the corner.
What do I pick?
I'm leaning towards Dell, HP, or maybe Lenovo. I have heard and read some good things about the Lenovo ThinkPads. I'm keeping an eye out on each of the Outlets on their sites for a good deal.
I'll probably get a laptop with a little more horsepower than what most people need because of the work I do but not quite as much as a hard-core gamer (more $$$).
- 4 GB of RAM
- Minimum 2.0 GHZ Dual-Core Processor
- 256 MB Video RAM (Dedicated memory preferred rather than shared).
- 250 GB hard drive
- 15.6" screen
- Plenty of USB ports!
I'd love to hear what other people are buying or any questions or comments that you have!
