Looking for a good laptop.. Any recommendations?

Well, it’s that time to start planning for school…  This time its for College and not High School, so I’m planning on getting a laptop to take notes and stuff… :p  so anyway, I’m up for suggestions and hopefully within my requirements… (otherwise there wouldn’t be a point in getting a laptop… ehehe)

anyway here are the requirements.
– portability 12-15in (well its for school, not a Desktop Replacement Laptop, so it should be light for me to carry with me from place to place.. hopefully under 5-6lbs)
– Widescreen Display (I want a widescreen display so I can use it for watching widescreen movies. I kinda want one laptop which can be used for both school and free time.. :p
– dual core processor (either the Core Duo or Turion X2.  I would go for the Core 2 Duo “Merom Core”, but that isn’t suppose to be out in another 2-3 months, and by then school would have already started and I need it for school.. lol)
– long battery (I’m hoping it would lase 3-5 hours of pretty cpu intensive programs so it would last even longer when doing low cpu intensive programs..)
– an actual graphics (if possible, a discrete graphics card and not Integrated Graphics like the GMA950 etc etc)
– 1+GB of RAM (512MB aint good enough for me, I want 1GB or more if possible)
– 80+ HD (well 40 and 60 GB are cheap and all but I want at least 80GBs)
– DVD-RW (who wants anything else..  it can do everything a combo drive can do, even burn DVDs… :p  and HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are more expensive and useless for the time being.. so yeah)
– Last and probably the most important… $$$ (I hoping it be less than 1800 if not 2000 before tax)  hehe
Thats about it.. 🙂 This article is listed under both (Computer & Technology) and (School) category as a laptop is a computer and the laptop is “mainly” for school purpose..  :whistle:
any suggestion is welcomed (relating to the topic of course.. :))

I’m thinking about getting a dell, but after reading about all these exploding dells, I’m kinda scared of getting one…   lol

  1. You sure you’re actually going to take notes with that thing or just play games, watch movies, and otherwise goof off? :ninja:

    I kinda wanted a laptop for school (since my writing is unreadable), but there’s really no point now since I only have 2 quarters left.

    Watch out though, some profs make sure that you’re taking notes and nothing else. I had a prof that made you get permission and prove you’re taking notes in order to have a laptop in class. Which is how it should be, those damn morons doing nothing but online shopping and browsing that bane-of-all-evil gay ass myspace site need to die. Even more annoying when the lights are out and we’re watching a film. :thumbsdown:
