Univeristy laptop Laptop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i looked at both stickies but the info one was tl;dr

What is your maximum budget?
~$500 but i could go higher if i see something exceptional
What country are you in?
USA
What will be the uses of this laptop?
internet and word processing, i would like it to either A: play CS:S or B: have no issues with linux
Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
i would prefer a thinkpad, looking at the X120e kind of
What screen size do you require?
i would like it to fit in the pocket of my cargo pants, so ~12" or less
What screen resolution do you require?
whatever
Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?
new only please
How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
optimal conditions? 6-8 hours
What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
laptop are not for games, it would just be cool if it happened to be able to play CS:S
What operating system do you need? (if any)
none would save me some money
Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
i like the look of the M11x or the X120e
How much hard drive space do you need?
doesnt matter, i can configure cloud storage for my needs
Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
i would lake at least 1 digital video out port for a second screen
Is there anything else we need to know?
i wanted a core2duo M11x so bad when they were $499, then they got the damn sandy bridge refresh and are $999 now. i suppose not being able to play games would help me stay on task at Uni, so its ok.
also i can get university discounts on windows, and other things i dont know of
