Laptop for work. Budget <600

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My friends, please recommend to me a machine that I can depend on for:

Budget <$600
1. Document preparation and creation - office, PDF's , presentations etc.
2. Good battery life and moderate footprint for mobility - but must have a keyboard numpad (I guess around 15" would include this)
3. Must be durable and reliable because of the lack of after sales support where I live due to high shipping costs
4. Photoshop and illustrator capable
5. I will not be playing any games

My focus is on high memory - multi tasking and physical durability in construction.

No interest in high storage capacity because I have external drives and cloud services.

I want it to last me at least 2-3 years of being on the go with business oriented tasks.

My team leader expects me to come up with a request for a machine asap. So I'm calling in the troops on this one.

My classmate who carries his laptop everywhere he goes (2-3 hour drive between home, work, school, and home again) has had nothing but praises for his Lenovo G505s with the A10 Mobile APU

They usually go for about 500, with 8GB of RAM.
