    I am a Freshman in college and I have absolutely no idea what kind or brand of laptop I should buy. There are so many choices and I do not understand the differences between most of them. So far I know that I want one that is no bigger than 15 inches, that is light weight, has a good battery life and is less than $1,000.00. If anyone can give me some insight as to which choices would be the best it would be greatly appreciated.

    go to www.komando.com and click on her buying guide menu. It will give you a good idea of what to look for.. She also suggest checking with school's bookstore... many times they give pretty good discounts.
    good luck with your schooling.

    Hello and good luck at school. My daughter began the "college experience" last fall and I went everywhere asking and reading up on what laptops best. I was looking at the schools website and got a great bit of info plus where the school is hooked up for giving discounts for your laptop. Oh by the way, we bought a great laptop from Dell, love it and NO troubles after a year of major use, but after all I did we should have bought a Apple MacBook because she is going to a Liberal Arts College, Emerson College in Boston and thats what they use... So do your homework but talk to some of the students if you can...
    Not to many parties now :eek: only kidding,
    like you will listen to a parent :D
