Don't know much about pc

  Faisa 11:39 30 Aug 2006

I would like to purchase a laptop as it will be very handy for my dissertation; however I do not know what to consider as a fairly good laptop based on their characteristics. So, I would be grateful if you could advise me on the feature of a good laptop.
Many thanks.

You must decide on a number of points to enable people on the site to give you an indication:
1. How much do you expect to spend?
2. Will you only use the laptop for your dissertation or are you likely to want to play games, watch films/TV etc?
3. Will you be using it for browsing?
4. Will it mainly be connected to a mains power supply?

Thanks for your reply.I would like to spend about £400 on the laptop. As well as useing it for my dissertation, i would also like to use it for browsing, playing games and watching films.

I know very little about PCs and even less about laptops but one thing I would say - "it will be very handy for my dissertation" - back-up, back-up and back-up (well ok three things!)!

Or take a look at this. click here

Intel centrino duo, with a 60GB SATA drive, card reader, wireless, dvd burner and intels GMA chipset click here

The only downer is it's only got 512Mb of ram, but it should do most things.

Must you have a laptop, desktop with a wireless mouse/keyboard and a tft screen will take up almost as little room and for the same price as a laptop will give you more 'bang per buck' as well as being more upgradeable.
