Good deal on laptop?

Recommended Posts

I actually just bought the laptop in the second link last week or the week before at Best Buy for that same price but with out having to do the mail in rebate. I really like it, it's my first Vista computer so I'm still getting used to it, but overall I'm really liking it.

Advice for getting a new laptop: IF Your Going To Run Vista You -Have- To Have At Least 2gb Of RAM To Be Comfortable. Otherwise just running the operating system is going to slow your computer down... not to mention the programs you'll be using.

I disagree with NEEDing 2 gigs. If you're doing minimal things on a laptop running Vista, 1gb is suitable.

Agreed. My Dell Latitude D630 runs Windows Vista Bitness just fine with 1.5GB RAM.


If I ever get around to removing the keyboard I'll pop out the 512MB and replace it with 1GB.
