Hey all! I'm looking for recommendations for a laptop for light school use for under $500 (flexible). I will be doing engineering and probably some comp sci but this will not be my main computer for that. I will be keeping my desktop (see my signature) in my dorm room and doing most of whatever potential CADing or programming on that.
Basically I just want a computer that has good battery life, a 14" screen, preferably a backlit keyboard, at least an i5 and HD 3000 graphics.
I'm a great deal hunter so toss out any PC's that come to mind and I'll see what I can find. If you need any more information just ask. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
Wow, the $320 pricetag on that really surprises me. I would probably snatch that up in an instant if it had a bit more of the portability I was looking for. The 14 or 13.3" is pretty important to me right now.
