I'd like to piggyback on this thread, if KevB doesn't mind, and ask opinions:
My oldest son will be heading off to college in August (*sniff*) and he needs a laptop (or equivalent) for school. Something to carry around campus in his backpack, write papers on ... the usual stuff.
What specs should I be looking for? What's a good, affordable machine that doesn't weigh too much and won't cost me $1,000+ (so no Macbooks, please).
If you make enough good decisions, three-year plans turn into two-year plans and five-year plans turn into three-year plans. If you make bad decisions, 10-year plans turn into no plan. -- Dayton Moore, 2006
