Intro: Hi, I hope this is the correct place to put this at, apologies if not. ok? so I'm currently looking for a laptop and I was looking for different opinions. So here are a few things im looking for/interested in....
1.) Im a college student, majoring in Computer Science(C++)
2.) I like to watch movies/videos, listen to music, download things, Im kinda interest in mmorpgs nun with graphics like World of Warcraft. So i'm looking for something with good speed and a decent video(graphic?) card.
3.) Umm..i have a 80GB external drive (aka usb) so i put most of my things on there music, pics, reports, what have you. So im looking for something with space but not too much when/if i dnt really need it.
4) I know i dont need a huge laptop so im looking for maybe a 14-15 inch screen? No loud colors. And The RAM, processor and all that is the main reason im even asking anyone for help because I dont really get what they are or which is best. Im assuming they're dealing with speed?
5.) im tryin to keep my budget at $400.....and $500 only if its something i need. Also im interested in these brands...'toshiba", "dell", "gateway", maybe"HP"
Thats all i can think of for now, I want you all to understand that I have been lookin on my own for like the past month or so and im still unsure of many things. I want my first laptop to be...up to my standards, something that'll bring me more joy than stress so im trying to be very careful. This place seems very helpful so this is why I came to you guys and im also looking in other places, i dont want to come off as being just lazy so apologies if thats how it seems.
Appreciate any help
