What should I get laptop wise? Tags: Laptops Desktops College kajunchicken December 26, 2012 11:28:50 PM So I'm going off to college in the fall next year... I'm going to have to ditch my nice desktop for a laptop I'm thinking of getting an ultrabook, but I'm not set on this idea. I'm definitely going to wait until Intel releases its new architecture. The efficiency speaks for itself. Should I spend the extra cash to get a touchscreen? I'm guessing Windows 8 would be pretty horrible without one. Should I even go ultrabook, or are they just a fad like netbooks? I just don't want something insanely heavy to lug around in my backpack. Open to any suggestions from the great laptop gods.
