it's my first post on this forum and I have a question for you. I'm looking at buying a new notebook for school and at the moment I own a Dell inspiron 15 which after a year is already looking like it's 4 years old.
The thing is I do use my computer all day , like about 5-6hours a day so I pretty hard on the battery and I also travel a lot with it. I was first looking at 13 inch computer but most lacks a optical drive which I really need and the only model I was interested in is not available here in Canada.
So I'm looking at spending no more than a 1000$ CAD or about 899 US for a notebook, with a 14" screen, preferably a metal casing or at least something that is not all plastic like my Dell, running either the new I5 or I3, but probably I would aim for the I5.
The Best reviewed laptop I could find for this price at the moment seems to be either the Samsung QX411 (best buy exclusive) and the Toshiba E305.
Any comments or advice on which I should buy ?
Thank you All !
