Laptop for GF - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Awesome laptops. Ideapad for shinier prettier, thinkpad if you want it to survive being run over by a bus.

Thinkpad T series is a good place to start (t410 possibly) for a basic laptop. X series if you want something especially small and light. I haven't kept up on the latest generation, but read up a little, you really can't go wrong with a thinkpad (just read up on reviews a bit and make sure you know the general consensus).

If she's a student there is a student site with lower prices although it usually doesn't take the promo codes they regularly have.

I'd personally suggest no smaller than 13-14". With my 14" screen I can barely fit two open office documents side by side with 1" margins. IMO much smaller screens feel cramped. My opinion anyway, I don't care for netbooks for this reason. Also learn to love the trackpoint biggrin.gif. That thing is awesome, much less tedious than touchpads once you get used to it.

Don't let the looks fool you though. Macbooks may look shiny on the shelf, but after about a year they start looking boring and old. Then look at a thinkpad from 10 years ago. Same look, just thicker. It'll stay looking professional for a long time. Matte black lasts. I've even stuck my thinkpad in my backpack under a stack of books without a case/sleeve several times.

Then grab an extra stick of memory and a sandforce drive from newegg. She'll have a beast that even you will be jealous of tongue.gif.
