My 15.4″ 2ghz Centrino/1gb/100gb Acer is too heavy to be portable and getting quite loud! Thus, I’m looking into lightweight laptops (under 6lbs) that are more mobile, and something that must last me 3 years. However, this generally means something smaller than 15.4 inches. (With a new lappy, that’ll mean my sister will reap the benefits of my old 2ghz Centrino)Here are my options so far:
- HP DV2404 14.1″ AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core TK-53 1.7GHz LaptopCAD $849.99 from Best Buy
- Dell Inspiron 1420 notebook (Intel Core 2 Duo T5450/1GB/120GB)CAD $899 direct from Dell.ca
- 13.3″ 2.16GHz MacBook (MB062LL/A) (1GB/120GB)USD $1,199 through Apple USA with Educational Discount
- 15.4-inch: 2.2GHz MacBook Pro (MA895LL) (2GB/120GB/NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 128MB GDDR3)USD $1,799 through Apple USA with Educational Discount
Any other good, viable options?
(As you can see, I don’t know how much I should spend yet–I should be wallet-conscious and get something with the most bang for the bucuk though. But if ever I do spend more, the MacBook Pro would be my choice!)
