Regardless of what laptop you get, here is my advice to you and everybody on this board. And really listen when I tell you this. Are you listening? DON'T FORGET TO BACK UP EVERYTHING ON YOUR HARD DRIVE!!!Do it every day if you can. At the absolute least, once per week. You have no idea how many sob stories I heard while in law school from people that forgot to back up their notes, outlines, draft final exams, moot court briefs, etc. Did you forget already?BACK EVERYTHING UP ON A CONSTANT BASIS! You will thank me.
I'm assuming since this is the pre-law board that you haven't started law school yet. You will soon see the truth in my advice. I just hope that it's not you who loses everything on your laptop without a backup.
