Shopping for laptop for new college student. Computer will also be shared at home by family for student projects, reports, web browsing, internet gaming etc.
LOTS to choose from & it's getting confusing! Student will use for reports, presentations, graphics, anything a college freshman can expect. Needs to be light weight, sturdy & dependable.
Best Buy has a Toshiba - 15.6" Satellite Laptop - 4GB Memory - 320GB Hard Drive. Model: (C655D-S5511) at $309. Is this enough memory and speed?
I don't mind spending a bit more for better long term value.Do I need to spend more for more memory & a faster processor? Should I consider refurbished? What features should I look for? Any brand of processor better than another? Any brands to avoid? ANY HELPFUL ADVICE IS WELCOMED! thanks so much all for your help...
