As per title, I'll be getting a laptop for college and then university. I'll still have my PC that I'm using, so all my songs and stuff will be stored here.

Stuff I'll Use It For:

- College coursework (Probably involving Microsoft Word, Power, Excel.)
- Simple web browsing and stuff.
- Probably some recording. Toneport GX + Shure PG48.

Price:

- I live in Malaysia, so I'll be paying a bomb in taxes and shipping... and then I'll get ripped off and charged even more. So something around $500 at most in your place.
Just want something affordable. I am NOT going to build it myself.


What I Think I Need:

- Windows XP
- 3 GB RAM (I can upgrade this later on, not an issue)
- About 200 GB ROM or so
- DVD burner would be a huge bonus, as long as it doesn't add too much to the cost.

Recommendations, please.

Is The Pit your personal shopper now?

Honestly you don't need that much RAM unless you're running Windows ****sta and 200gb HDD on a laptop is a rarity at best.

Treat a laptop like a woman, drop your standards and you got yourself a useful tool.

I have 1GB and it does fine.

Ya, 3Gb is just plain overkill....I would check newegg.com, they usually have cheaper prices, but i cant remember if they ship that far or not

Drop your standards by 2 GB RAM, 80-120GB HD space and you might be able to find that.
