Scouting for a new laptop
For some time now, I’ve been pondering on getting a new laptop. I have 3 others wanting to buy my old one so I guess I’ll go ahead scout for a new one with at least a Centrino or a Core Duo, 1GB of RAM, DVD Writer, Card Reader and 12 to 13 inch of screen. Still want them small and can last 6 hours on battery. Hopefully, I could get all these under 70k. :D
So, who are the likely candidates?
MSI Megabook S260 Notebook PC
AMD Turion 64 Processor MT-30
12.1″ WXGA TFT
256MB (upgrade to 1GB)
8-Cell Li-Ion Battery Pack
60 GB Hard Disk Drive
ATI Mobility Radeon X200
SD/MMC/MS Card Reader
Price: Php69,900 (plus upgrade to 1GB)
Dell XPS M1210
Intel Dual Core T2300(1.66Ghz) / 2Mb / 667Mhz (YONAH)
1GB [email protected] (2 X 512MB)
60Gb 5400RPM SATA HDD
256MB NVIDIA 7400 Graphic Card
Multi-Format DvdÂ±Writer Dual Layer
Oh, no, all the rest are too expensive! And I don’t want anything beyond 13 inches of screen. Anybody else have any suggestions?
Maybe I should go with an Apple MacBook 13″ and just use BootCamp.
