Hey CF (it's been a while, yes),
I'm in the market for buying a new laptop but it's been difficult finding one that meets my list of preferred options. I'm hoping that some of you have kept more informed about what's out there for laptops these days.
My preferred specs:
- 13" - 15" in size
- Core i5 (may settle for a core i3 but definitely don't need the power of an i7)
- Backlit keyboard (not an absolute necessity)
- 7200rpm HDD or SSD
- multitouch trackpad
- Decent battery life (ex. 5 hr +)
- Non-gaming (use is for internet, word processing, programming, watching videos)
- Around $1000 CDN (lower is of course better)
I'm open for any recommendations. I'm also keeping an eye on future laptop releases like those demo'd at CES.
