Both of the previous two are wrong..the macbooks are not made for college students. Most coleges run windows and 90% of the world runs windows it is not yet safe to spend $2000 on a mac. The hp dv900t is a very good computer but it is too much for a college student. It is very powerful but it is also a desktop replacement and that is not what you want..you want a laptop that is very mobile, powerful, easy to use, and affordable. I think the HP Pavilion dv6000z series is the best. It is the most affordable and it comes with an AMD processor which was proven by cnet ( http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10442_7-6389077-1.html?tag=lnav ) to be better than intel. It includes all of teh security that you want and it come with the option of a built in webcam and microphone
What type of laptop should I get???
I am going to be going to school so I definatly need one thats reliable that wont crash or whatever on me. I also need one that has ALOT of memory space because I get alot of music and Im going to be takin alot of photos so they are going to be taking up the bulk of space on the computer. I also need a good battery life, because I between me going all of the places Im going I doubt that Im going to have much time to charge it. Thanks for the help.
The Dell E1505…its a great laptop at an affordable price. You can get a 120GB hard drive in it which is all the memory you need. It has been the most picked laptop by students and is an editor’s choice laptop by pcmag.com
I have one and absolutely love it…it hasn’t crashed on me once, and i use it for everything from playing all my music, to video editing, to photoshop, and schoolwork. All-around a great notebook.
What laptop would you recommend for a student like me? (10pts)?
I’m currently a sophomore in high school. I was wondering whether to get a laptop now, or wait until I’m about to enter college (senior year).
And if I should get one now, what kind? Like a Dell or a Macbook?
I’m just a student, typing things, doing presentations, that type of thing. However, I enjoy playing guitar and singing, so Mac might be better for that?
Also do any of you have information on that deal from apple in which when you buy a new MacBook, it comes with a free iPod Touch?
Another question you didn’t address in your original question is your price range. If you are looking to get a Windows-based laptop, your options for an affordable computer are greatly increased, as even the most bone-stock MacBook will start at a thousand dollars.
You say that you enjoy playing guitar and singing. While this is all well and good, the MacBook would only benefit you if you plan on doing some recording and editing in the near future. Also, there are a number of programs for Windows that are as good as or better than GarageBand. I just bought myself a relatively powerful Toshiba for under five hundred dollars, and I have not had a single problem with it yet.
If you decide to go Windows-based, it is really a crap-shoot which brand you go with (for the most part.) Having owned several computers as well as having worked at a PC repair store for a while, I have seen laptops from all the major brands crash and burn, as well as seen people have absolutely no problems over the course of their computer’s life. I had a Gateway for two years and had neigh a problem with it, but my mom has a two-year-old Dell and she is on her fifth motherboard, due to both technician incompetence and faulty parts.
In summation, if you decide to go PC, get a Dell, a Gateway, a Toshiba, or have a local PC store custom build you one.
If you decide to go Mac, you’ll get a less powerful computer for more than you would have paid for it’s PC counterpart, and you will have compatibility issues with various and sundry things till the day it dies.
What’s the best laptop for me?
I consider myself pretty technologically smart but I need some advice. I’m a student, I need a powerful yet affordable laptop. I will be using it for graphic design, a couple of games, and surfing the web. I know I want atleast an i5 processor, 8gb ram and 750gb hdd. I would also like a good graphics card and I’m thinking a 1080 res screen. Or is there going to be a noticeable difference between 1080 and 720 res screens? Also i know some i5′s are better than some i7′s. And i would like to get the laptop for under $750.00. Thanks in advance for the help!
Dont buy apple. In college you will need a windows based laptop to run certain programs,in addition,apple is having difficulty dealing with new viral outbreaks on apples. Among many other issues with apples.there is a reason they are still only a fraction of the market place after almost forty years.i would suggest an amd a10, and i would look at clearance deals at places such as best buy and fry’s electronics. Contact me if you need more help. Jdbj32m@yahoo.com
Please someone suggest me good laptops?
with specifications i3 processor, 320 GB Hard disk, 3 GB RAM with good performance. I heard that Sony Vaio is not performing well, but I like the model. Please guide me in this.
The Dell Inspiron line should be familiar to anyone who has shopped for an affordable laptop in the past decade or so. The 15R is another serviceable configuration in a long line of serviceable configurations. It packs an Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB RAM, so it’ll handle just about any task you throw at it, including some photo or video editing. The 15.6-inch LED screen is big enough for watching movies, but small enough to move around. For students and casual users, this is a great middle-of-the-road option.
