I am getting one over the summer. My budget is about 1500 to 2000...preferably on the LOWER end of that range!!!
Using it mainly for:
2. Word processing
NOT for Gaming or actually watching DVD movies...will use it mostly at home and overseas. Need to be able to lug it within the same building without wearing out my arms...so not TOO heavy!
15.4 inch Widescreen (prefered--not absolutely required)
40 to 60 GB HD
256 to 512 MB RAM
at least 4-in-1 card reader
3 or 4 USB ports
DVD RW (+/- dual format prefered) for saving data/pictures, files
Wireless 801.11b/g built in
Bluetooth (not required, but would be nice!)
Around 6.5 Ibs
INTERNATIONAL WARRANTY THAT IS GOOD IN THE US AND WESTERN EUROPE
Any suggestions? I have been told to look at Sager. Other brands I am considering are:
Acer (Aspire 2003)
P.S. I am a student and state employee, so discounts would be great!!! Also, suggestions for mobile color printers that print fast and are under 200 bucks.....and digital cameras under 200 bucks would be great too!
