Since I am going off to college in about 3 weeks, It is time for me to buy a computer. I have decided that a notebook will be much more practicle. I am looking to spend around 1500 or so. I am looking for something with.... 15.4 inch screen (when I went to bestbuy today, The HD screens were looking pretty nice) 512meg of ram 128mb vid card pentium 4 or AMD proccesor w/ 2.8ghz or so Wireless stuff (802.11g card, plus LAN card) 7200 rpm Hard drive however, I don't need 60gig, and thats the smallest one most places has @ 7200 xp pro at least 2 if not more USB ports. No extra software (my dad has office pro, and I have a priated copy of PS) Is blue tooth nessary? Really, I know the basics of most of the crap, but I don't know everything as if it were my car Anyone have any pointers for other things they might add or subtract. I am basicly looking for something that is fast, and by the time I become a Senior, it won't be totally worthless/outdated (hints why i want 7200rpm HD, 512 ram, big vid card) As of right now, I basicly only use the computer for Surfing and papers, but I am sure when I get to college, I will be doing CAD and everything else. I am going into Mech. Engineering (Michigan Tech U. for those who care) so any engineering students, what would you recomend my computer be heavy towards.
