I am in the market for a new notebook computer and would be grateful
for any advice that you might have. I am basically looking for
somethign portable that I can use for my business so it’s looking
like it might need to be able to run the following programs:
CAD Program – Rhino, Art Cam, etc. I am not planning on operating a
machine from it, but if it is possible get an affordable one that
can attach to a machine, hey, the more the merrier!
Inventory/Business Program Website Builders for the website that I
will get around to building one of these days Storage Space for
Photos Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator and other photo and drawing
programs Microsoft Word, Excel, etc… etc., etc.,
How much memory should I get? 512 mb? 2GB? I want it to not be as
slow as my current computer, which just cant seem to handle more
than three programs open at once. How fast a processor? I already
think that I want a dual core processor. Any other things that I
should think about when purchasing?
I am also definitely getting a Windows machine. I am not going to
buy a Mac for a ton of reasons. My first computer was a Mac and I am
not going back, LOL! I am also leary of buying a Dell, I have one
now and am not thrilled with their customer support and the photo of
a Dell notebook setting itself on fire that has been all over some
techie blogs and even in the New York Times really scared me off
buying a second one.
So, any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks a bunch.
