Hey Guys, looks like I will be buying a new (laptop) computer within the next few weeks. I have a general idea of what I want, but there are so many choices that its hard to even begin to narrow the selection down.
I'd like to know what you think about Compaq, HP, IBM, Toshiba, Sony, and Dell models. Any experiences would be awesome
In fact, if some of you know much about computers, I'd love if you could help me out... I'm looking for something with 1.1Ghz+ (anything is alright but a Celeron), 20gb+ harddrive, 256mb+ ram, DVD/CDRW drive, Ethernet, USB 2.0, and Firewire (IEEE 1394) capability. Basic XGA screen is fine, would like good battery life. Size/mobility is one of the most important considerations. I'd like it to be light and reasonably small, but not tiny. Not looking to spend more than $1800.
