Laptop Suggestions


Recommended Posts

We've been looking to replace my wife's old gateway laptop.


We've considered a Mac but the bang for the buck isn't there and I've heard about some issues with Quicken which is deal breaker for the wife.


After doing some searching, I'm finding this to be a deal.



HP Laptop

17" Screen 1440 x 900 resolution

Blu ray Drive

500mb HDD

4 Gig memory

Centrino T5800 Core 2 Duo processor

Integrated media reader

N Network card

Price is $999


What alternatives would you suggest?
