I wish to purchase a laptop computer. I am a little sick of my slow, old computer. I mean, it's totally functional, but it's getting to be a little outdated (it's been 6 years since I got it!). I assume that when I got it it had the best stuff... Well, I don't know that for sure, but you can tell me. It has 120 GB hard drive, 1.8 GHz, with 512 MB RAM. It doesn't have any problems, but if I have too many programs running, my computer thinks it can't handle it and starts getting lazy. It's nearly impossible to work on my company's website - I am sure part of it is Comcast sucking, but the pages always time out before they load. And the help desk said if I'm wired, it shouldn't be this bad and it's probably my computer's fault.
I am looking at a Sony, purely because it's CHAMPAGNE GOLD OOOH! You can customize it, and for $1429 I have it with 200 GB hard drive, 2.4 GHz, and 3 GB RAM (plus some other upgrades - Office, Photoshop, extended life battery and a mouse). Should I go for more? I am willing to spend up to $2,000 if it means I can wait another 6 years to upgrade. I'm not as concerned about the hard drive - I'm going to keep this one as long as it works - so I'll have that additional storage. It's more memory/speed that I'm worried about. I don't do much fancy stuff with this computer, but it'd be nice to watch movies on my laptop. I hear there's a new Starcraft coming out, but that'll probably be the extent of my gaming.
I am kinda tempted to get a Mac... I had one before and loved it, but I know that so many websites and programs don't have Mac versions. It also fought with my PC over which computer could use the internet. Mac was a jealous bully and said "If I can't have it, no one can!" (I think I just needed a different brand wireless router, but that was very aggravating). And I hated that I couldn't right-click!
