Laptop for a writer/researcher
by regulargonzales - 4/15/13 5:43 AM
I'd be very grateful if someone could suggest a laptop for me. I'm a freelance writer and researcher. The laptop will be my primary computer and I will also travel a lot with it so I guess I want something of a compromise/hybrid that is not too heavy but also not too small and uncomfortable to look at or type on. I want a screen that is at least 14 inches. As I type a ton I would like a nice keyboard with a fair amount of travel on the keys, and preferably a number pad (though the number pad is not a deal breaker). I will not be playing games or using heavy duty software; however I do often have a lot of browser tabs and windows open, and I would like a laptop that can cope with that and is reasonably fast turning on etc.
I can spend up to $1000.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
