Solved CQ61-360EV or Dell 15(1545)? Tags: Dell Laptops Last response: October 31, 2009 1:15 PM in Laptop Tech Support Share captainspi October 30, 2009 1:28:43 PM Hi there guys, I am looking at two laptops right now. One's a Compaq and the other's a Dell. You can have a look at the Compaqs specs on this link: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/aa/en/ho/WF06b/321957-32... It's available for 650 dollars. The other choice I have right now is dells 1545 which is available for approximately 630 dollars. The specs are defined by the reseller and go something like this: Core 2 duo processor: 2.1 GHZ 2GB RAM 250GB HDD DVD-RW 15.6 " TB Display LAN Wi-Fi Bluetooth connectivity Built in webcam with mic Default O/S is DOS ICE BLUE color So far I am thinking the compaqs a much better deal, but I am worried about its battery life. It has an HD display and is running on a t6400 (I think), won't that suck a lot of power? Which one of the deals do you think is better? I want a laptop mainly for coding programs and running multimedia. I will appreciate any input. Thanks. Edit: The link originally posted up there was broken, its all fixed now though.
