I am trying to find a laptop/notebook that covers a budget of about 1,000-2,000 dollars. I am hoping to get one that has a LCD type screen of at least 17 inches, I can go down to 15 but I would prefer 17 or up.
It will be used mainly for papers for school, but I would like to be able to play music on it, such as pandora and a couple of browser based games that I play, barely any graphics as they are text based. The option to play a dvd or download music and such would be nice as well so the memory space would have to be relatively decent. I know I can get an external hard drive as well but I would prefer if the laptop came with a decent amount in the first place.
I've been looking around at Dell since my school is offered a discount through them though I've been told you really only pay for the brand name, not the quality. I would not mind HP either. I live in the US and would like to own it for a few years minimum. Help?
