Buying a new machine
My dad told me his friend works at a laptop company (unsure of the type) and he can get deals on laptops, he says that his friend can get 1500 dollar laptops for a grand or less.
My dad is going to be getting me one and I'm wondering, what should I expect from a 1500 dollar laptop? I want to make a list for my dad for the kind of stuff I want on my laptop.
For example, I want atleast 1 GB of ram, a AMD64 dual core 3500+ or higher cpu, and atleast a 160 GB hard drive, and a atleast 256 MB video card.
Is all that obtainable in a 1500 dollar laptop?
