i'm gettin ready to buy a new laptop, and so far i know i want at least a gig of ram and the smaller 14.5-15 in screen. i'm thinkin i want about somewhere between 1 & 2 ghtz processor. after that, not sure what to look for, as in brand, best place to buy, etc. i'm a pc guy, not a mac, and i want to keep the price at $1600 or less... any suggestions? oh, yeah, what about storage? i heard dvd's were the way to go, then i heard they were 6 bucks a pop, and hold only about 100 photos. seems more cost effecient to go with cd's no?
