I'm starting school in a few days. I left college about 5 years ago for financial reasons hoping to return after a couple semesters but that never happened. I'm going to be taking online classes because I work 60+ hours a week and need a laptop that won't break the bank but will do everything I need well. What I need is: Internet Explorer Microsoft Word Office Relatively light weight Hi def screen FAST! Cost no more then $1300 I was looking at the Apple notebooks but the Safari program they use for internet isn't supported at my school, (University of Phoenix). We bought my wife an HP about a year ago and it's been working great for her, but I know a year is a long time in the computer world, and there is probably something out there 10 times better for the same price. All you tech-savvy guys and girls, what are your opinions? I need to pick something up in the next week, I just don't know enough about any of this to make a smart purchase on my own. I appreciate any help you can give me. -Chris Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
