Hi, I am sorry to say I do not totally understand the inner workings of a computer, but I try. I am trying to buy a laptop for fairly cheap (500ish). I do everyday computing but I also do financial modeling on a program called Crystal Ball which really strains my computer. I want a decent amount of memory and RAM too. My big problem now is what kind of processor should I get. For the most part I don't really care about bells and whistles, just a laptop that won't freeze up on me. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
It would help if we knew which Pentium Dual-Core it actually is. We don't want to get you anything slower. And laptop CPUs ARE slower than desktop CPUs.
Ugh I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, and thank you for helping. Already you are more helpful than the guys at Best Buy. I may not know much about computers but he had never even heard of AMD despite selling laptops with it. He was more concerned about upselling me 3 years of virus protection than a laptop. Since I can't be more informative is their any laptop you would recommend that is a good buy for the price?
