Anyway, I have never felt the need to have a laptop. I can get so much more computer out of a desktop for the same money. I have been looking for a netbook to take with me when I travel, and to the conferences that I attend each year. I went to Best Buy's website to look at them and came across two laptops for only $50 more. I know that they are both bargain-basement laptops but for just a little bit more money than the netbook, I was able to get a full-size keyboard, a larger hard-drive, a DVD drive, and it came with the new Windows 7. So far I love Windows 7 - I run Vista on my desktop, which took a bit to get used to, but 7 seems like a natural transition.
Anywho, my choice came down to an Acer with and AMD Athlon processor and a 160GB hard drive or the Toshiba. I made a trade off with this choice. I have never had an AMD processor, and wasn't sure that I wanted to start with one in my laptop. Maybe in my next desktop. The AMD came with Win 7 64 bit, which I prefer, while the Toshiba came with Win 7 32 bit. In the end I chose the Toshiba. I like it so far. You can check it out on the Best Buy website here.
