Laptop Ideas for Law School

    Hi guys, I'm getting the ball-n-chain a laptop. She's starting law school soon and I think it will help a lot with being able to easily take data from school to home, vice versa, along with just giving her some more flexibility.

    I was hoping to get some input as to some brands/models that I can look for. Things I'm looking for are:
    • Lightweight and rugged (she's clumsy)
    • Great battery life
    • Full keyboard/num pad that's easy to type on
    • Windows She won't use a Mac

    After that, it just needs to be able to decently run Office-like apps and be stable (I know oxymoronic with Windows). For example, I have an Asus M50 with T9300 processor, which is probably overkill. I certainly don't want a netbook, but don't need anything high end. Most important are battery life, lightweight, and rugged.

    Thanks a bunch,

    Ah, business class laptops are a great idea. I'm not real thrilled about Dell stuff, but I'll definitely check out the others. Thanks,

    Most people complain how bad dell is, I think they are referring to glossy cheap home edition laptops which IMO aren't that good, but dell business class line is a different ball game. I have yet to hear someone complain about those.
