Excuse me if this is in the wrong forum, but I am looking for an Intelligent answer!! Can anyone help? I am looking to purchase a new or used laptop computer. I am confused by all the jargon! There are some things I will require: 1. A good operating system. 2. A CD/DVD rewriter. 3. Internet access, wireless if possible. 4. A good graphics card, and a good screen. 5. Good sound. 6. A carrying case. 7. Relevant leads. 8. Reasonable memory. 9. A fast processor. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction? I don't want to spend the earth, but if I have to use the steam driven computer at work any longer, it may just find its way onto the next APWT! Since the powers that be will not provide I will haved to dig deep. Help me!! Thanks in advance.
