I'm ordering an HP from online for law school. I'm not sure if 5.29 lbs will turn out to be hassle. My current laptop is so OLD that I can't compare this new with it..Sorry in advance, if this is considered a stupid question!
If you are thinking about a Mac, make sure to check with your school first to see if its exam software will work with a Mac. You probably don't want to be handwriting your exams.
