Re: Wait for after xmas sale or shop now?
Usually the laptop computers go for $500 to $2500 without much actual difference in features or performance - so I look for the most real performance at the lowest price from a good company.
Today you can buy a laptop with one computer processor or two - in the dual processor models there are Core Duo and Core 2 Duo variations with the latter being the highest performance
I was looking for laptop for DW - hoped for under 500 for Core 2 Duo system but all seem to be above $800 including Dell - Office Depot has some Core 2 Duo Lenovo models with Lenovo rebates - (Lenovo bought the IBM PC business lock-stock-and-barrel last year) - Was able to walk out the door with a Lenovo Model 3000 N100 0768DKU (Core 2 Duo) for $650 including printer after rebates last week.
Single processor laptops seem to be going for 450-550 at the bargain end of the spectrum. Maybe lower after New Years when they get blown out - still good computers
