So I’m turning to you for advice, readers! I figured that would be the smart thing to do before accidentally buying a piece of crap. I basically want a laptop that is:
- Easily portable and lightweight, but not a netbook (absurdly tiny screens make me weep)
- Cheap enough that it won’t make a grad student cry
- Not a Mac (save the rants, I’m just not used to them)
Really, that’s all I care about. I’m basically going to be using it for internet and word processing, so it doesn’t have to be super fabulous – it’s not replacing my desktop. I want it for taking notes during class, doing homework or working on presentations while traveling, and being able to waste time on the internet somewhere other than my apartment. Need to abuse those Seattle coffee shops.
I appreciate all suggestions on what to investigate or avoid!
