I need a new laptop - quick - March 13, 2009, 08:27 AM

I need to pick up a laptop today. Anywhere else to get one besides g-damn Best Buy? I know, I should just order one online, but I'm leavng for a trip on Monday and need it for that trip.

A) what do you guys recommend? I'm not a MAC guy.

B) if I did wait to get it and order online, where's the best deal?

Thoughts? Anyone with a hook up?

How good of one do you need? Dell is having a sale on their Inspiron (15xx or something).

Is not a gaming laptop blah blah.. but has the ram, processor and HDD enough to get ya going.

I have no input on which laptop to get, I'm not really a big laptop guru, but you can always try microcenter instead of best buy.


For when she doesn't know she wants it.

The Inspiron 15 might be okay, its cheap, for sure. I hear they have quite a bit of issues though, particularly with the disc eject button locking up the system when you try to remove a cd/dvd. Plus, I dont like that they made the palmrest glossy - shows off every smudge/fingerprint and just looks tacky to me. If you can score a 1525 off the shelf somewhere, definitely pick it up (its the Inspiron 15's predecessor and a much better system, IMO)

I'm a lead farmer, motherfucker!!
