12-22-2007, 12:05 PM
Hey Guys,

I was hoping that the Tekzilla crew could recommend a laptop for me. I am looking to spend no more then 999$ (CAN).

- Fast
- Core Duo
- DVD Playback
- Wireless
- 13 - 15 inch screen
- Lots of Ram
- Video / Audio editing
- Surfing

As you can see, this is not for gaming. I have a rig at home for that! :D

Thanks for all of your suggestions.

Dell 1510 or 1520.
Or go into your local Best Buy orFuture Shop ... there are a ton of laptops in that category at your price point. Recommend either HP or Toshiba - pref with Intel CPU (Centrino Duo/Core 2 Duo), but AMD 64 OK as well.

Toshiba are good laptops but right now the mother board they are using in their laptops are having blackout problems. Just read the reviews.

HP, Acer, IBM,

I would still buy a Toshiba just the next models that come out after they get rid of this small problem they are having.
