chi0 Posted April 17, 2009 Share Posted April 17, 2009 So since I'll be going back to school, I'll need to get a laptop computer. I've been using a desktop since undergrad, but it's time to switch to a laptop for use in the lab or during my commute to school. Can anyone recommend a good, inexpensive model that would be appropriate for engineering grad school use, or has anyone been shopping for a new computer and come across a good deal? I'd like to keep the price under $800, and I'll probably just be using it for MS Office and e-mail/internet (I'll hold on to my desktop for photo/video, itunes, etc.). My company gets a discount with Dell but I'd like to hear if anyone has had good/bad experiences with Lenovo, Toshiba or Sony laptops as well. And does anyone have a strong preference for PC vs. Mac as it relates to getting schoolwork/research done? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
