What's the best Laptop?
A friend of mine is looking for a new laptop, and as he knows next to nothing about computers, asked me to pick one out for him. What's the best laptop out there? Price is of little concern (company's paying for it ) but it is important to him that it have an internal DVD player. Now, this guy's no gamer, and isn't going to be running SETI or ripping divx, so performance isn't a big issue. In fact, I can almost assure you he'll be happier with an integrated modem (no dongle!) than an extra 128mb of RAM or GeForce2. Smaller would be better, but seems to be mutually exclusive with internal drives? Of course, this will end up being his status symbol for the next couple years... What do you all think?
