I am considering getting a new laptop for school use. My current one is old and barely works.
I don't play games, don't watch movies or videos on it, I don't even have internet in my apartment. I am all about spending whatever it takes to get something quality and functional but don't like spending a penny on "extras" I don't need.
My budget is pretty much based off the functionality of the laptop.
I obviously don't need much so a simple $600 one will do, but have no problem dropping over a K IF there is good reason for it.
I'm not Mac or PC biased all that much except that I have experience with old school stuff and would slightly prefer to stick with that over an Apple product.
I just need something not huge, not tiny and preferably very thin and lightweight, no fancy movie or gaming packages.
Only reason I've turned here for some input is 1.) I don't know jack about computers at all and 2.) Neither do the dbags at best buy apparently
Thanks for any advice on what to get, I just need some leads to get me started.
