Buying a Laptop

I am thinking of purchasing a laptop for graduate classes. Any suggestions? Do's? Don'ts? How powerful, yet lightweight can one be?

Buying a Laptop

Definitely get a Mac. They are more user friendly than Windows computers. For instance, instead of having to install a bunch of things for a new printer, you just plug the new printer in. Macs are smart and do the hard stuff on their own. They also don't get viruses. Macs cost more, but they are well worth the investment. I am not a computer nerd by any means. I am actually in graduate school too and just had to take the plunge to buy a new computer. I chose a Mac. They are the best. (08/12/2009)

I am wondering, based on previous experience, about DVDs that come with textbooks. So far, all the ones I have needed are for PC. (08/13/2009)
