I think the time has finally come to upgrade my 1.1ghz amd athlon setup. Its running xp home edition with 256 sd ram. Its recently become super slow and browsing two internet windows at once can be quiet a challange. My options are to upgrade the board, chip set, and ram, or getting a new computer. Doing some quick research, upgrading may not be as cost effective as I once thought, and recently the idea of a laptop has crossed my mind. Therefore, I'm looking up to you guys for some suggestions as the navigation of laptops can be endless btw the chip sets and which are better and such. The comp is going to be used for home use, I'm not a gamer at all (haven't played a pc game in 5 years!) so I won't need a huge graphic capabilities. What i do need is very good multitasking for things such as ie, word, excel, and powerpoint, and quick start up. Any recommendations for specifications, brands and models are highly welcome. Did I mention I'm on a college student budget? The lower the better withouth getting total crap, was looking at something in the range of $500-650. Thanks guys
