Hi, I'm a ChE student at a community college right now doing the transfer program to a 4 year university where I will resume my education as a junior in the Fall 12 semester. I'm thinking that I will need a laptop; I'm not that great with specs and hardware however. So any advice? I'm trying to keep it at or under $800. I've also been looking at the dell xps 14z, but can't find any decent reviews for it. Thanks.
