I'm in the marke for a new laptop for uni. Even though I'm a student I don't want a student computer because they are always crap. After some research I know that Intel are killing AMD in the wireless laptop processor war, but is there much difference between a Centrino Dual Core and Centrino Dual Core2 ?

Hexahedral apportionment perusal, tachiol sombrero deoxidizing amphigenesis swinish kept!

Centrino Dual Core and Centrino Dual Core2


Like Volkswagens and Porsches - Dell are usually the price leaders but don't discount something from Compaq, Lenovo or even ASUS...
If you want durable - Twinhead

Like anything shop around, have a test drive, do your homework, understand what you will want it to do. And don't buy the first one you see...

Ive had macs my whole life and windows at work, The mac absolutely kills windows and when you compare the way they are put together opposed to a dell or the like they are in another league all together, you wont be dissapointed.

And remember to get your education discount on any apple products they dont verify you are a student in any way.

You should be able to pick up something nice and new for around the $1000 mark - shop around, check out Dell's, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Dick Smith Powerhouse etc. and choose a deal and spec that suits you.

What do you want? Speed, Graphics, Portability, long battery life, storage?

All the name brands have something to suit your purpose, most have good after sales service, buy as much warranty as you can, make sure you also beat the sales guy to throw in some bonuses or toys... (like Office 2007 )

Not really - it's pretty much standard (Centrino etc...)

As for wireless 'net - the provider usually gives you a card (Voda, Optus, Next G) to access the service so what the lappy comes with really doesn't matter.

Most if not all have 10/100 RJ45 ethernet ports so connecting to a wired network is a snap. Some wired providers also can supply a wireless modem router.

Basically, anything you buy these days should have good and easily configurable access to either wired or wireless networks.
