Re: Laptop purchasing advice
While there are many suggestions the one thing that is important in thetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
decision making process is cost and whether or not it fits in to the
person's computer system budget.
Additionally what the computer is going to be used for and how long one
intends to keep the computer before updating to a new one is also important.

I think you are getting some very good advice on this thread!
I would add the following ideas.
1. I lean toward Lenovo
2. 8 gigs of ram would be best but checking on Amazon quickly, I don't find
too many laptops with that much ram.
6 gigs might be acceptable, but 4 gigs of ram is definitely not enough.
Processor speed and type, I think is very important.
I think you should get an I5 rather than an I3.
Mor important, I think the processor speed should be no less than 2.5 GHZ
It seems to me that each new version of Jaws, Kurzweil, Openbook and
Microsoft office is more resource intensive.
That's why you need a good fast processor speed. While you ar making a new
investment, you may as well get enough horse power to pull the heavy load!
