    Default I need a new laptop

    Alright, I know someone posts a laptop thread on here a few times a year, but times and needs and budgets are all different. My old Dell has about had it, and I really need a reliable laptop that with Office included costs about a thousand bucks. I will be using the laptop primarily to research and write my thesis and write other papers. So I don't need anything flashy, I am not an artist and I don't play any games other than solitaire and Galaga, I just need something incredibly reliable that won't crash on me while I'm writing my thesis. Any suggestions?

    there are so many various processors out there in the world of laptops...which ones are more powerful than the others? is core2duo still one of the upper tier ones or are there other laptop versions that provide the same punch?

    No now you have i3, i5, and i7. And theres also sandy bridge that was just released but the boards are being recalled. The problem is already fixed though so in April they should be available.

    I have an Intel QuadCore processor in my new laptop. It's pretty ridiculous.

    spend a couple hundred on the laptop and back up your files on a (off-site) external HD...no need to spend a g, unless you want to...

    Same thing I got. Just what I need for what I do. Can't beat the price either.

    Download Open Office and save on the Microsoft stuff. Does all the same things - only for free.

    For those of you who helped with this, thanks. I ended up breaking my budget a bit and buying one of the new MacBooks. I am writing my graduate thesis so I figured it was an "investment." Loving it so far, it is super super fast.

    Everyone I know that has a Mac loves it. I kind of wish I had spent the money on one when I bought my laptop this past fall. It would have been double the money though. Probably best I didn't.
