I am beginning to start shopping around for a new laptop, but I have not gotten far as I keep getting bogged down by all the terminology. First of all, needs. My primary needs in a laptop are surfing, email, pictures, ipod music/vids, and writing (working on short and long stories). I probably won't do much gaming if any. Last time I bought a computer I didn't see any need to pay for a dvd burner much less a player because I'd never be watching movies on it. Then a couple of years later I got an ipod, and couldn't download movies or shows on dvd because I had no burner. First question, any recommendations on what I need. Secondly, is there some book or website that would give me a computer/laptop anatomy class for dummies, that is explaining what everything means and what use it would be to me (ie, what is a dual core processor vs a 2 duo processor, etc). Thanks!
