I know some of you are good with computers so i need few tips and advice please.
What are the important things to look for when you are buying a laptop?
Im a student and therefore im not looking for a very expensive laptops just a good quality one. Any tips?

which one should i consider more important -the RAM or the hard drive? e.g:
laptop A has 160Gb hard drive and 3Gb RAM
laptop B has 250Gb hard drive and 3Gb RAM
which one would you go for?

they both have same ram^

but go for the one with more ram for a faster comp and also cause you'll never use that much storage

Are you purchasing from the US? I personally ordered through the dell business outlet, which gives you a 3 year warranty. Every once in a while they have a 20-30% discount on outlet computers. You can get a pretty well equipped high end business laptop for ~$500

i thought the RAM was the computer's memory and its the one that storage information such as word processing or is that the hard drive's job?

Go for the one with most RAm - you can get an external hard drive for pennies when you need it. One thing - always take backups of ALL your important documents

Thank you all for ur advice n tips

Also should i buy a laptop that has a really fast processor? i was looking at one that has T4200 n another one T3000- obviously the first one cost more. If i buy one with a large RAM does it matter if the processor has only T3000 or less?
