Well, I don't NEED one, but if I'm going to be buying a new computer, it ought to be a laptop. I'm a student and it makes more sense than to buy a new desktop. That being said, I run a few statistical programs, like SPSS, that could use a fair amount of computer power. I don't do any video editing or graphics design. I would like to spend between $400-500, I'm hoping to take advantage of Black Friday and get one now. Primarily, I'll use the computer for internet and word processing purposes, but I could get a laptop for a couple hundred bucks to do that. I'd rather spend a little bit more and be able to play games like Fallout 3, Spore, and some Command & Conquer games too.
