Okay, here is the deal. I am buying my very first laptop computer this week.
I am still going to go to Best Buy and look around, checking out the other computer on my list, but I think I have pretty much decided.
2. Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with Intel® Centrino® Processor Technology
Juli, I texted you asking what model you have. But if you get HERE first, let me know. The model of this one is M305-S4910.
The reviews were good. I was thinking about getting this special edition HP computer for about $50 more than this one. But after reading the reviews, it seemed that it was not as good as it could be for the extra money.
This Toshiba has almost as much memory as the HP, a long battery life without the clunky battery. The complaints center around it picking up fingerprints. Not a biggie though. The other problems seemed to be defective products, not something that is a regular occurrence. I have had several people tell me that Toshiba makes great computers. So I am thinking that this is the one I am going to get.
But IF YOU ARE READING THIS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
Especially if you own a laptop or have ever owned a laptop. I am really scared that I will buy something and end up wasting a bunch of money.
For the record, this laptop is $679.99
Here is the big deal though. This laptop seems to be everything that I want. But it is unavailable in Columbia. I would either have to order it online (pay for shipping) and HOPE that it comes before Saturday (which is when I am starting my experiment and need a laptop to do all my homework while cooped up in the lap for HOURS). OR, I could drive to Jeff City to get it where it is available.
There are other models that I could get that are cheaper, but they have less memory and less battery life (The things I am most worried about).
I think that if I WERE to get this one I would just drive down to Jeff City. But I think that I will go to Best Buy here and see what they have.
Anyway, now I am just rambling. I just want to get a good computer within my budget of $700-$750. And I want to know everyones opinion.
Okay, I am now going to look at iPods.
Farewell, until I hear from you.
