| p.1 #1 · Laptop/Ultrabook Advice? |
So I feel like I'm going nowhere fast when looking for a laptop. My old HP is falling apart (literally, the fan is now exposed) and I'm in a definite need of a replacement. But I'm looking for something pretty specific that seems to just not exist.
Alright here are somethings I'm looking for:
-Can't be a Mac (I have an HP desktop and I want seamless integration between the two).
-Can't be any bigger than 15.6" because I travel a lot, and the thinner the better. Really love ultrabooks but they are just too expensive without the right specs
-Decent to good battery life, as I said I travel a lot and my current laptop literally lasts an hour off the charger
-Good RAM, absolute bare minimum is 8gigs, would love to get a 16gig though (contstantly running PS, Illustrator and lightroom.
-At least a 750gig hard drive, I use a lot of portable hard drives.. but I like to have a lot on my computer as well.
-An HD screen is a must
-I want to keep it somewhat reasonable, under $2,000 is a necessity, but under $1,500 would be great (I'm supposed to be a broke college kid afterall).
So computers really aren't my specialty so I would love some advice. I know I'm probably going to end up having to customize, but I need a good starting point (brand, model, etc). I've been looking for weeks now and I keep falling up short whenever I think I find the laptop of my dreams.
Any starting points or advice would be great!
