General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Laptop help!
« on: March 24, 2006, 03:17:30 PM »
see the computer threads above for OneNote thoughs.

Also, i can name at least three laptops that are under 3 lbs.  the difference in three lbs of weight carried all day isn't trivial.

can you please, i would be very interested, even the dell 710 M is 4.1 lbs to start

i have always been a fan of the HP laptops. i have configured one online : HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook PC
 
Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Home Edition with SP2
Intel(R) Celeron(R) M 380 (1.60 GHz)
FREE Upgrade to 14.0" WXGA BrightView Widescreen!
Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 900 - Celeron
1.0GB DDR SDRAM (2x512MB)
40 GB 4200 RPM Hard Drive
DVD+/-RW/R & CD-RW Combo w/Double Layer Support (backing up files is a must, need at the least a cdr - even if there is a flash drive - 2 is always better than one)
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN
6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery (computers are plugged in during class so its not an issue, sohuld get about 1:45 unplugged)
Microsoft(R) Works/Money (already have office 2003 software)
hpshopping in-box envelope
 $1,024.99 
3-year HP Accidental Damage Protection with Express Repair Extended Service Plan for HP Pavilion and Presario Notebook PCs
U4821A     $349.99 

the total is 1374 plus tax.  it weighs 5.4 pounds, maybe a bit much, but they dont get much lighter than 4 - 4.5

something to also think about is microsoft onenote.  i saw it on the efollett site for 49.99 (retail 99-199) as long as you can prove you are a student (ID # or something).  this lets you create tabs for each class/project/etc. on the top of the screen.  In each tab, you can then set tabs upon the side of the screen for notes, projects, research, etc.  this allows you to have notes for all classes at your disposal in a second.  it is truely a good program that will make life easier.

since i have never been good with a roomate, i will need to live alone, and if i can get an apartment for 1000 a month i will be lucky.  thats at least 36000 also figure utilities, internet, food, i am towards the end of my finance period on my car so then i will be paying off my loan with a loan (GREAT), gas, insurance, books, tuition is around 21000 so thats 63000 + 36000 + 35000(other random expenses) = 134,000 in debt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOO
