Hi, I know new is always better but times are tough and I cant fork out more than $200 for a laptop.
I dont want a 5 year old laptop. I already have a 4 yr old one. And 2, 8 yr old desktops. SO 2yr old is fine or newer.
I may be asking for way too much but this is the main specs of what I want:
* Want the Ram to be at least 1GB
* Want the HD to be at least 120 GB
* Want vista or preferably windows 7 (All I have used is XP but willing to upgrade to these)
* Want a 13,14, or 15 in screen. I don't mind the small 10" ones but hear they are poor at speed.
And finally, want to know what processor to get. I currently use 1.8 ghz; OR at least that is what the specs say when I
right click on computer and see the properties on my current Laptop. Would a 1.66 ghz be too slow. I saw a windows 7 with the 1.66 1 year old. It was a Dell mini though.....
Please state what might work, brands, model numbers.
Also, one important question, what free program can I use that is safe to see basic info on my computer so I can compare.
I was using system info by gabriel Topala but I can figure it out and its too complicated. Need a simpler program.
I thank you kindly in advance
Note: I am not a gamer. I dont need robotic speeds. But I want to multi task comfortably.
