I’m going to be majoring in computer science and I need recommendation for laptops. I have never owned a laptop before or used it too often, I always have used my desktop when I’m at home. Below is a list of what I think should be enough for my laptop.
- I'm trying to keep the budget below $500, but if it is absolutely necessary I'll go above that.
- I don't know what size screen I really need for my major, but I'm thinking 14'' or 15'' (you guys tell me which is better). I also need the laptop to be lightweight.
- Battery life should be decent as I'm going to be taking it with me to classes obviously.
- I prefer Windows 8 OS, but Windows 7 will also do.
- I do prefer this laptop last at least 4 years for college.
- I'm thinking 500gb hard drive is enough (if needed I can buy a external hard drive). I dont need a SSD because they usually tend to cost more.
- I'm thinking 4gb RAM should be enough.
- I'm not sure what type/kind of processor I need but hopefully i3 is enough?? <-- (I don't even know if that made sense to you guys)
