Going back to college and our main household computer bit the dust, so I need to get a laptop that can do double duty. Looking for something with a fast processor and plenty of memory. I have no clue what I'll be getting into with my classes (it's been close to 20 years since I was in college!), but household uses include bill pay, light correspondence, Genealogy (have lots of photos and records I scan and save on an external hd, but the program will be on the laptop), internet surfing, attempts at writing, email, and if possible, handle WoW.
Generally, I don't keep multiple programs opened at once as I've never had a computer that could handle it.
Since I'll be paying tuition and buying books, the less expensive the better, but hubby and I are prepared to spend 750 - 1,000.
I've found a few I like, but before I spend any money, figured it would be good to see what "you all" had to say on the computers out there.
