I've been around these forums quite often, never signed up till today. Figured this would be the best place to ask. Fall term for college starts in 30 days. I need to get a new laptop, but I'm not sure where to start. Don't really have a set budget, I just need to be sensible when considering what specifications I would honestly need for Physics and Astronomy classes. If you're interested in helping, here is a little of what I'm looking for: Can handle any assignment my professors give Runs Adobe Photoshop CS5 well Lightweight, good battery life ANY and ALL advice considered and appreciated!
