Here are two I compared kinda high on the price range but wanted to know if an intel i3 core would be worth the extra, want this laptop to last 5+ years
10_How long do you want to keep your laptop?
I want to keep the laptop 5+ if possible, I want to ride it out for as long as I can, with the possibly of an upgrade here and there.
11_What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
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.
I have a Toshiba currently and really like it never had a problem with it yet, and it seems a lot of people I talk to also like their Toshiba's. I'm open to other brands just looking for something reliable.
13_What country do you live in? USA
14_Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I would prefer to buy it from a brick and mortar (e.g. bestbuy) store or online from a reliable online company (e.g. dell, newegg...)
Always can upgraded the memory later, think it would be better to upgrade to maximum memory right away? It has 3Gb of DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) I do believe. I'm assuming it has 4 slots for memory any suggestions if I should upgrade the memory?
