    My mom and I agreed that I can get a laptop for school. It has to be around the price of my moms laptop (which is somewhere between $800-1000). I also like it to be something that I can enjoy when I'm not working and have enough space for personal files. Can I get suggestions? Thanks.

    Anything on there [​IMG]


    If you want something compact go for the M1330 (use the filter on the side and you can get it to have a 320GB HDD), or if you want something a lil bit more powerful and with a dedicated graphics card you could go for the M1530. The M1330 is an awesome, sexeh lil machine and the M1530 is its big brother.

    A laptop called Studio 15 also popped up on the list whilst I was playing around and it looks like it has some nice hardware in it, although I've not looked too much into it.



    PS, dunno whether the links I've included will or not. Just filter on the top link to get the spec you want for the price you want.

    What is this for?
    Gaming?
    School?

    I recommend: Dell XPS M1530, if the screens too big,
    theres a smaller one: M1330. Sister has a M1330, its not to bad.
    But, in my experience, Dell has failed on me. 1 Desktop ordered, is suppose to arrive in my door in a week, took a month to come. Not even overseas either.
