Looking for a *fast* laptop for work mostly - But more couldn't hurt!
Hi all,I just saw this forum, and figured I might ask before I pulled the trigger on a laptop without knowing much about it!
I'm looking for a laptop, i5 or i7 and I really don't want to have to spend over $700. And I'd REALLY like to not spend over $500-$550- but hey, beggars can't be boogers...or something like that...
Anyways - what is important to me is:
- Reliability - I want this thing to last a few years. Right now I'm running a 2008 Toshiba Satellite Pro, and I'm finally ready to upgrade! But this thing is a TANK. A little bigger than I like for portability (17 inc.), but it hasn't failed me yet!
- Screen Size - anywhere from 13.5 to 15.8 - I want to go a little smaller than what I currently have, as I'd like to travel w/ her.
Asthetic/Ergonomic: I want it to feel good, but it doesn't have to do the windy-doodle or anything. But feel clean, and NOT cheap and plastiq'y. Matte or glossy really doesn't make a difference, and I would prefer it to be of hard materials.
- Speed - I want it to be quick, and respond when I want it to. I won't be running too many intense programs, at the most some video editing and 10, 20 firefox windows; but nothing too crazy. Maybe a "light" game session every now and then, but isn't at all important.
- Brand - I guess this is with reliability, but anyways.. I've heard Asus and Lenovo are making some good ones these days, is it true? How's Toshiba been as far as reliability and keeping the smiles afloat?
Anyhoot - other things I'd like are - just to have a nice screen, doesn't have to be 1080p but it's be a PLUS. I'd like at least 4gb RAM, and I NEED HDMI.
Blu-Ray drive would be a plus - but isn't at all necessary. It doesn't even have to have a cd drive..
Let me know if I missed anything and as far as what I have been looking at already- basicially every laptop on SD, Dealnews, and Dealcatcher, LOL.
