I might be able to buy a laptop.... but, it won't be much of a budget. Probably $500 to $700... (+ taxes extra).
I used google to search and review a few but I'm still unsure. I really wanted to go with a 2nd gen. Intel sandybridge one rather than an older business machine (bad idea?). I just want something newer with modern hardware.
Here's what I came up with:
HP ProBook 4430s LJ517UT -$575
Asus U46E-RAL5- $590 (refurbished)
ASUS P43E-XH51 - $670
Dell Vostro 3450 i5-2450M - $600
Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4830TG-6576 i5-2410M - $650
Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6634 i5-2430M - $650
Any comments on these? I have an impression that HP and Acer have a bad rep for lower quality laptops but these are some of their later offerings.... are they still bad?
Is anyone familiar with these models? Which one would you pick and why?
I want it for general purpose but don't worry about gaming. I'm not using it for that.
