I will be coming to Canberra next year in Feb and since I need a laptop for around A$ 1,000 I was wondering should I buy one when I get there or should I bring one with me. To give you an idea of prices here, I can get an
HP DV 6000 (Core 2 Duo 1.6Ghz, 1gb ram, 120gb hd, Vista Basic) for A$ 1,075.72
Acer Aspire 5720 (Core 2 Duo 1.5Ghz, 1gb ram, 160g hd, Vista Home Premium) for A$ 1,075.72.
These are the ones that are competitively priced, higher spec are overpriced. I hate Vista but unfortunately thats all they are offering. I am in Pakistan BTW. I would really appreciate some advice. I am also thinking of ditching this laptop idea and getting a desktop instead ( I hate laptops but space matters in dorm I am afraid )
Any advice would be highly appreciated.Thanks in advance.
I agree with Maz. Of the two the Acer would be the better option. Recommendations here in the laptop section are going to be limited. There are only a few of us that frequent this section on a regular basis.
