I need a new laptop and was wondering if some of you could tell me what you like best. I have searched some older threads from 07, but I am sure more laptops have came out since then. Here's what I am looking for:
Nothing too expensive. I have a desktop so this would not be my main computer.
Something possibly to take to school with me if need be, but this is not the main reason I am buying one. I want to be able to use it for school work such as research and writing papers and not be stuck at my desktop.
I bought a dell about 6 years ago and it is so heavy so I want something a little more lightweight and nothing huge. Some one in my class has a Acer Aspire. Those are ideal for school, but I think it's too small to use at home on my lap. Do they make anything a little bit bigger that, but not too huge/heavy?
I just bought a router, but I am finding my older dell is running too slow and the battery does not work. A slight bump and the whole laptop crashes. That would not be good if I was in the middle of writing a paper.
