  1. I'd go with the Sony. It has far more storage and speed isn't necessarily essential in a laptop used for mundane tasks such as school work and internet browsing. 4gb or more of RAM is usually the sweet spot for laptops. I'll post some links to a few laptops of choice. Don't particularly need to spend that much on a mere laptop...

    Any of these would be great. I'd stick with trusted companies, at least 4gb of RAM or more, lots of storage, and light weight.
