I'm starting nursing school
in August. I have only used a PC, and I have had horrible luck with most of my PCs. I finally got my Sony about 4 years ago, and it has been good other then a few easy to fix problems. Now it is out of date, my mom needs a computer of her own and I am wanting a new laptop so I was going to give her my Sony and upgrade.
I would like something that will last me the next 4 years with little to no problem, that is dependable and nice. I have a limited budget around $1100. I don't use it for much other then e-mail, paper writing, research, facebook, pictures, etc. I'm definitely not a tech person and don't care about gaming and all that other stuff. I would prefer something small that is easy to carry around to class and to the library, but that is my only real requirement. And I need some suggestions.
Mac or Sony? Or something else (I do not trust HP or Dell as I've had horrible luck with them)?
