looking for a laptop... Answered

im looking for a laptop, not just good but fast, alot of GB space, up to date (obviously), easy to use, not an apple laptop, i might download games but not many, need to be able to connect usb cables and memory cards, easy enough to move it around but not light, weight doesnt matter too much but nothing light weight that can easily break

but will use it mostly for facebook, email, possibly webcam... most likely not though, writing documents, obviously need wifi (but i assume all laptops come with the ability for wifi)


so... anybody know of any good laptops with most or all i want? and please dont be rude

I have been buying Sager notebooks. All this company does is notebooks so they are not distracted by other stuff. They have amazing customer service, somebody always answers the phone when you call. Their notebooks are superior but in the same price range as everybody else. Anyway, you can check them out for yourself. Many of my computer customers have gotten these and they have all been happy with them.

You dont mention anything about price so i'll try to be generic:
For facebook, email, etc pretty much any laptop will do. An SSD drive will add some nice speed but they tend to be expensive. My suggestion would be to have an SSD for your operating system and a regular SATA for everything else. Additionally a fast processor is nice but dont go too crazy on that if you dont have to (no need for a quad core for facebook).

If you want a fast laptop for gaming you are talking about a whole different thing.. The Alienware laptops (for example) are pretty damn good but come with a high price.. The only way of reducing that price is to look at games you want to play, see what their requirements are and buy accordingly. Graphics cards and memory become an important factor for gaming laptops

Wifi, webcam and usb are pretty much standard in all laptops (you might want to check if you have usb 2 or 3 though). Card readers are also pretty common but check to make sure. Lighter laptops might not have an optical drive which you have to decide for yourself if it is important for you or not. A variety of connections exist to external screens, check if it has at least HDMI or DP if this is of interest to you.

Something that depends on your preference is size. A larger screen implies a larger laptop making it harder to move but gives you a better picture. Impact on price varies.

Hope that helps
