A notebook for university

  1. Mar 29, 2004 #1
    Basically what I'm looking for is a PC with minuscule footprint and a touch screen. I might go for a tablet PC but the reviews on them are not very decisive. Any suggestions are welcome...

    You'll end up getting a tablet if you want touch screen.

    You'll have to be more specific.

    Don't base too much off of CNet. They are horribly biased.

    When I go shopping for notebooks, I always look at: PCWorld Top 10

    Who isn't biased? CNet is a fine resource, provided you take it with a grain of salt. Your best bet is to decide what hardware you want, find a few devices that meet your requirements, and then search for at least 3 reviews of each one by SEPARATE sources.

    As far as deciding between what platform to use, I recommend deciding on exactly what you want to be able to use it for. Examples:
    Note taking
    Internet browsing
    Games (simple)
    Games (3-D)
    Graphic Design

    Tell us what you want to do with it and we'll recommend what "it" should be ;)

    Some sites are more/less biased than others. CNet has a reputation for being biased.

    MacAddict has a heavy reputation for being biased towards Mac products. If you want a review on the latest Apple Computer - look elsewhere.
