I have that funky feeling that I should start saving up money for a new laptop. The laptop that I'm using, a HP ze49xx, is a Celeron 1.6 GHz that I got in 2005. It does the job, but sadly, XP is just not cutting it anymore. The specs that I am looking at:
- Windows 7 64-bit OS
- Non Intel graphics chipset
- Ability to Virtualize apps (I use Virtualbox)
- WiFi Networking
Uses for the computer:
- Presentations - I am starting to do more public speaking, and need a laptop to do Powerpoint
- Watching DVDs
- Internet on the go
- Playing games
What has me confused is the graphics chipsets that are available from nVidia and AMD (ATi). If I know how much I'll be spending, I know what to start saving for.
BTW: This will be in addition to my main desktop computer, not replacing my desktop computer. Call me old school.
