The Question Club
So I'm supposed to be studying for my ethnic and race relations final (which is tomorrow) but instead I'm lamenting the fact that I have to hand back my beloved laptop, Mr. Chips, a mere week from now (we rent laptops from our university.) So I am totally thinking that a new laptop will probably be one of my first post-school purchases, but I admit that outside of what they LOOK like, I'm not that "up" on what a laptop should actually have. All I know is that, as much as I love my current, rented laptop, it is basically a piece of shit (but that's probably due to the fact that it's refurbished.)
In any case, I am looking for recommendations. I use my laptop for surfing the web (obviously), but I also use it for my writing, and I play Sims 2. I know I'll need a lot of RAM, but in terms of actual brands, what ones do you all have experience with, and which ones do you recommend? Which ones should I avoid at all costs?
