I am currently searching for a laptop for myself and was wondering what would be my best options. I am getting ready for college and am going to be mostly using it for school/recreation. I need a nice laptop that can browse the internet easily, is decently fast, is very reliable and has a good lifespan, would be nice if it was nice looking ( i can't stand ugly laptops ), a decent to good monitor, nice features, and last but not least a cheap to decent price. I have a fairly decent desktop that I can use for more advanced games so a newer GPU isn't really needed. I plan on hopefully getting it off of craigslist or ebay, or a good wholesale website. Any reliable websites would be good to know too. I have done a little research and have found the Apple G4 and the Dell Latitude D610 to look decent. I notice between the Macs and the Dells that the processor speed is significantly different in that the Dell's are a bit higher than the Macs. Does this affect performance or is it simply due to the different manufacturers? How are these laptops? What laptops would you suggest?
