Default Which LapTop ??

I'd like to have a laptop to access the internet while I'm traveling. I'm not into gaming.... or anything that requires alot of space/power. Something good, dependable, user friendly. Also: Opinions on warranty packages. I'll be the only one using this. I'm a careful adult
Thanks, BrotherAL

Default Re: Which LapTop ?? Install Vista or XP ??

Brotheral with another ? I've seen several complaints about Windows Vista. I'm wondering if I should get my laptop with XP installed.

You should go with XP. I personally like Vista, but if your only spending $850 on your new laptop your probably not going to have the greatest of experiences with vista.

2gb is definitely overkill for what you described. I got away with using 512mb on xp, and I would play games like CS:S, TF2, BF2, and frequently used photoshop on large projects.

1gb is fine for the applications you described, especially if you go with XP, (which you should). If you buy a laptop from a manufcaturer with 2gb vs 1gb you will probably spend an extra $100-$150 for something you really don't need.
