I'll buy a laptop for max. 850$ from the USA.But i've some difficulties to make the good decision.
-I'll watch HD movies
-I'm not plannig to play games
-The battery life most at least 3 hours.
-The weight could be about 6lbs.
-I'll use it for min. 3 years.
-The sound quality is not so much important.
-LCD ecran's quality is important.Because i'm going to watch a lot of movies.
-I actually use it at home and take it with me for the holidays.
-The WiFi capability must be more than enough.
-120+ of HDD is prefered.
-It will be good if the laptop has an HDMI port.
The fact that it's a refurb and it's CPU is only 1.66ghz compare to the two Satellites, says otherwise IMO. I think the A305 is the best choice out of the group; 1.83ghz CPU, large and faster HDD and 3gb of RAM.
about 3 hrs of battery life on a 6-cell battery. I have seen A WXGA matte screen and a WUXGA Glossy screen from Dell. Both were nice, but I would rather have the glossy because the colors are brighter and more accurate, it will give you glare in areas with a lot of lighting though.
