I posted this in the wrong area earlier today and didn't receive any responses, so trying again here. Thanks!
I have spent hours and hours shopping for a new laptop to replace my 5+ year old HP Compaq nc6220. This laptop has served me well, but is now very much out of date.
I am looking for a laptop to use in my small business. Mainly surfing, emailing, etc. One thing that I need is the ability to have many, many tabs open at the same time (yes, I'm one of those people) without bogging down or getting excessively hot. I am not a gamer at all.
I had narrowed it down to the HP ProBook 4530s Intel Core i3-2310M 2.10GHz, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.6" LED-backlit HD, DVD±RW, Bluetooth $410 + Free Shipping, but that is expired. I found it at 2 other stores (Amazon and Tiger Direct) this morning for $429 but those deals just evaporated before my eyes as I was ready to pull the trigger.
So now I am between the above (if it ever comes back for that price) and:
Please comment ASAP before this deal also evaporates if you think I should go for it (it is the last tax free day here in Missouri). Also please let me know if you have a better suggestion or if there just isn't anything out there right now and I should wait.
I think both laptops you listed are very good deals. Since the HP 4530s deal has expired, your decision has been made for you :-) It was a toss up between the two anyhow. I'm also about to purchase the Lenovo Edge E520. You will be quite happy. I also browse with about 6-8 windows open with about 10 tabs in each window. After awhile, it does begin to bogg down, but I've been very happy with the laptop I've been working on (Acer with a 1st gen Core i3 330M, 4 GB RAM). Note, you may also want to consider an extended warranty from SquareTrade http://www.squaretrade.com/pages/ They're offering 10% off your first warranty.
