General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Buying a Notebook Computer for Law School? The Q and A thread« on: April 25, 2007, 09:44:14 AM »
I don't use many programs...just the internet, Acrobat, iTunes, & Microsoft Office...every now & then some photo-editing. I am incredibly impatient...when stuff is slow opening or takes to long to process, I get angry. Speed is my first concern, reliability is second, design & weight is third. I want something pretty & not too plain & it can't be super-heavy or too thick...I'd prefer something under 6 pounds. I'd prefer a 12" to 14" screen. I want something $1500 or less after the cost of a 3-year warranty (or longer).
So far, I'm liking the 13" white MacBook & the Sony Vaio C Series (a little pricey for me). Does anyone have any other suggestions that seem to better fit what I'm looking for?
Just make sure that whatever you get, you put in at least 2 gigs of memory. It makes a world of difference in Vista and definitely helps in OS-X.
