Well, everyone, in this past week I have been searching for a laptop computer, and it has been a tough decision, sifting through all the laptops in my price range trying to find the best computer for the money I have to spend. My budget is roughly about $1000 (at the very max $1200).
Anyways, after sifting through the options, I have come down to just a few choices remaining. And I would like your advice on which you think I should get.
2 of the computers are Dells. One is a computer that I saw in a Dell magazine that we got in the mail here, and I liked it, so I pulled it up on the internet (and increased it from a 1 year to a 2 year warranty).
The 2nd Dell is the EXACT same computer, but configured by myself instead of using the Dell E-Value Code, but then I used my Dell Student Discount thingy that I get for being a student. The printers included with both Dells are different printers.
The other computers are Asus computers, coming from a wholesale computer store in the Houston area called Directron. I have a friend that works there that says he can get me a 10% discount.
The final option is an Acer computer which I just recently added to the mix, but I am very weary of Acer computers. I have never had an Acer computer before, but I have used Acer hardware in general in the past, and it has always been faulty.
Anyways, take a look. Tell me your opinions, thoughts, flames, etc. Oh...and what do you guys know about Asus? My friends tell me they have quality hardware, but I dont have any experience with Asus, so I dont know. What about you guys?
P.S. the reason that there are Intel Core Duo processors listed under the Asus computers is because I configured them barebone, and I have to buy the CPU separately.
