    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

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218093379440

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218090329155

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218090330700

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

    feel free to suggest anything

    Also, Tigerdirect > Newegg

    i found that going directly to manufacturer sites and ordering a laptop with your personal customization is convenient despite the ship time and prices are generally lower than at retail stores such as best buy. this time of the year manufacturers have sales i believe. i got a lenovo ideapad a few months ago with 4gb ram and 300gb hdd with 2.0 ghz for roughly $550.

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