  • Help Fenikz Buy a Laptop

    I suck at computers so I have come to you

    Looking for something in the $600-$800 range, has to be able to run Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc, and I would like to be able to run these at the same time with little lag. Basically everything in the range comes with a Intel Core 2 Duo processor. A giant hard drive isn't necessary and I might be looking to buy a external hd in the future to store music and videos on anyways. I will probably play some games on it, but nothing too demanding. I would prefer to buy from a store with a face like Best Buy or Wal-Mart, some place that I don't have to talk on the phone or through emails if it breaks(even though they will most likely direct me to the manufacturer anyways)

    Here are some I have been looking at

    and to appease you mac people the only thing close to my price range is

            15'' screen isn't my type of thing, I had a 22'' desktop screen and when i bought a new laptop the 19'' screen took me a while to adjust to.

              I dunno man... anything more the 16" inch screen makes the laptop too big imo... the 15" is a nice size and should be fine

                Do they even make a 19" notebook? I know HP has a 18.6" machine, but 19 is way to big. I mean a 17" already looks like you're opening a car hood when you lift up the lid, a 19" would just look stupid.

                But as for recommendation, I'm actually in the market for a notebook aswell, and I've widdled the list down to a Dell Studio 1555 or Macbook Pro 13". So from that original list, I'd say go Dell.

                  I've been given a variety of laptops to work with as tech writer by tech companies & I've learned that the best one on the mkt. is the IBM ThinkPad, easily the best I've ever worked on.

                  Avoid anything made by Toshiba -- they're boat anchors. Real crap.

                    I agree ThinkPads are good but I just hate how they look haha, they are so ugly. And I couldn't agree more about toshiba's wow are they garbage

                        Normally I'd say buy a Mac and thank me later, but at your price range the other options are better.

                        Might I suggest this Gateway laptop?

                              I will not give you money to buy a laptop...


                              I suck at technology, so anything I would say with me trying to be serious would be most likely useless anyway...
