Default Re: starting college in the fall, need laptop rec.

I am going to college starting in the fall and tradition would have it I would probably build my own computer as I always have but I need a laptop. My spending range is about 800$ so if anyone has some good suggestions I would love to hear em' I don't really need anything special. I need to be able to do work, i want a decent size hard drive so i can have video games on it if I feel like it. Want it to be relatively fast. Thanks!

And I don't want a mac, considering linux but I doubt it

Acer TimelineX would be the best bang for your buck.

Check CNET: Laptops & notebooks: Laptop computers, notebook computers - CNET Reviews

And if its for school and you've never had a laptop and never had to lug one around or prop it up on tiny desks/your lap: I suggest you go for 12 or 13 inch and 5 lbs at the absolute max

I used to use a laptop as my main computer but it just wasn't meeting my needs so I payed someone to build me a desktop. I hear your warning though so thank you. I will check out CNet for sure. I will also check out that TimelineX. Thanks

Anyone use a tablet for college?
