Laptop for Media

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Dell Inspiron 700m which has been a great laptop, but is obviously

pretty old and can't handle streaming media sites such as ESPN3.com very well.
If anyone could offer some advice on what type or specs I should make sure that I get when

choosing a new laptop. I don't do any gaming, but do stream a lot of media such as ESPN3.com and

other sports onilne. I also would like to use PlayOn through my PS3, but my current computer does

not have the juice to play smoothly.
Outside of that I don't have any other specific needs. I am looking for the best value and am open to

any brand. Any suggestions on exact laptop or certain requirements when choosing would be greatly

appreciated.

I'd go for the Studio 17, review here. Since it is for media streaming I'd get something with good/big screen and capable speakers. If the Dell fits the budget it is the best choice.
