Hi, I'd like some help with a new laptop. I was considering a macbook pro since it's rumored they are gonna be update soon but I can't really wait anymore.
1_What is your budget?
2000$ - 3000$
2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
3_What screen resolution do you want?
1920x1200 for 17in
4_Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
5_How much battery life do you need?
don't really know. The more the better i guess. I'll say 4-5hours.
6_Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
not really. I'd like to be able to play starcraft2 and diablo3 whenever/if they get release but other than that i don't think I'll play much. Spore maybe, on medium-high?
7_What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo / Video editing, surfing the web, playing music, watching movies, Etc.)
I need it to program, (c++, c#, java) and to use flash cs4 and illustrator.
Maybe some video editing
web, music and movies also...
8_How much storage (H.D.D Capacity) do you need?
9_If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post the links to them.
not really, but I live in canada
10_How long do you want to keep your laptop?
about 4-5 years
11_If you would like to mention some other things about purchasing your ideal laptop, post them.
I can invest a high budget on that one (3000$) so I'd like a great laptop that I can keep for a long time. I don't think I need a blu-ray player though... Is there really any use except watching hd movie on a 17in screen?
12_Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
thats the basic problem, I dont really know anything about any laptop brand
