I am getting a laptop for college real soon and I was hoping someone could give me some recommendations on my choices. Buying a New Laptop | Student Owned Computing
that is the recommended laptops for my school. My cousin also keeps telling me to get a dedicated graphics card to run the programs and such.
I was thinking of getting:
--- Lenovo ThinkPad W520. A friend at NCSU has this laptop and loves it. I know this one exceeds the recommendations and would be a perfect choice.
---- the XPS 15 for $999.99 looks like a good choice (and dell is now giving a free xbox 360 with purchases
). I would prefer to get this one cause the specs look fine and the xbox. Do you think this one would run all the programs fine? and do you think the laptop would run everything fine like 5 years from now?
Any help from someone who knows more than me would be great
