Here is what I’m looking for:
1) Intel Duo based, because of better battery life (compared to AMD)
2) 15.4 widescreen, 17 inch is too big
3) 2GB or 3GB ram
4) Wireless n
5) Sturdy, but not that heavy
6) Upgradable video card if possible, nothing fancy to start with
7) Good battery life
8) 600-999 dollars
Notebookreview ALWAYS has the best prices. NEVER buy retail laptops. ALWAYS buy refurbished. Preferably HP laptops like the DV6000. They're stylish, fast, and very affordable.
