Hi, I am a college student and will starting to work on the classes for my IT degree and since I will be spending alot of time away from home I need a laptop that will be able to handle the load of the multimedia, website design and oracle classes but have a decent battery life as well. I know this is probably asking alot but I have never bought a laptop before so I dont know which are the best. I am open to all brands but need to keep the price in the $700 - $1100 range if possible. Thanks!
I would suggest checking out Toshiba's Satellite line of laptops. I have a Qosmio myself and my friend has a Satellite he uses for college. Both of them have been used for almost a year now with no problems whatsoever, I leave mine running 24/7. I spent a lot of time looking around before I bought mine for college and Toshiba seems to give you a very good deal for the price, I haven't dealt with their customer service personally but it was recently rated the best of the major laptop manufacturers. Just my 2 cents
