What's up guys? Im heading off to college in a few months and im looking for a good labtop to take with me. I was looking at the Dell xps basemodel with 60gig,512 ram. The only thing I absolutly need is it to be wireless. Any sugestions?
sony's are pl but a little bitchy sometimes for some reason. that goes for the desktops also. if its wireless u want, most base model laptops come with it now a day. and if it doesnt, u can add it from radioshak for like $30. dell xps are good systems but mite be too much for the common college person. i recommend a mid-level inspiron from dell. i have one myself. the same hdd and ram on an inspiron will be a lot less money which i'm sure you'll need for books.
if price isnt an issue AT ALL then go with alienware but expect to pay 2500 and up. if price is an issue but you must play games on it then the xps from dell will be perfect. just dont go with sony or we'll be hearing from you again real soon.
No price is an issue no more than like 850. But i heard about this new windows vista and some kinda new hardrive that are going to be in these computers. Should i wait for the new os to come out? and if yes, when is the release date? I go to school in august so i need one by then. btw thanks for all the help.
the new hard drives are already out. SATA drives. most mid to high end computers have them. as for the new OS, truth is Windows SUX big giant balls especially when a new OS comes out. its always full of errors and glitches. and if your going to wait for that new technology to come out, your going to be waiting for the rest of your life. go with XP home or pro. its ALMOST what some people consider stable right now.
