I need a not so expensive, reliable laptop for a college student who's mayor is going to be computer science. Which one is the best?
Thanks

Hi there,

Do you know if you will be doing advanced programming? I recommend you check out what kind of classes he is taking and what they require. A great all-around laptop is the Sony Vaio EB series. It has a fast processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive space. You can also upgrade to dedicated graphics if his classes would require it. It is also a very affordable choice.

What do you think?

Cheers,

If you dont need dedicated graphics buy Dell inspiron 15R, it will cost you around 699$ in USA www.dell.com, it has Corei5 460M 2.53ghz processor(turbo boost upto 2.8ghz)
4gb ddr3 ram and option of upgrading graphics card afterwards if you want for another 100$.
