Sorry if this question has been asked a million times before. But I am looking for the most current answers. Want to buy a laptop that will enable me to take my lousy, 2 year old Emachine desktop offline. Also plan to get wireless internet access that will enable me to dump my existing high speed cable. Am getting a Blackberry to plug into laptop to access the internet. Every application of this I have seen seems fast enough for my needs. Since I don't travel too much, want a 17" screen. Want as much memory as can reasonablty be bought. Want to buy all the software that is needed now, plus all future software that can be bought today at a reasonable price. Can't quite say that "price is no object," but am willing to spend as much buck as necessary to get the best amount of bang at a relatively reasonable cost. Thank you for your recommendations.
