i'd like to buy a new dell laptop
my needs are very basic: i don't really need Microsoft Office and i don't play video-games. i have a tablet that i use for video-chat and travel, but the tablet-screen is too small for my liking and i don't like typing on it (hence a new laptop!). i have no fixed-budget on this machine (valuing the quality/longevity more than a cheap price for cheap-parts).
since i tend to keep my belongings until they fall-apart, i would like a machine where i can replace a worn-out battery (i've read some models of laptops the user can no longer easily replace them).
any suggestions on a suitable model would be appreciated (and if there are any deals associated with the suggested-machine, all the better!).
