lefthanded guitar Tech: laptops - what's standard now/ (14) Tech: laptops - what's standard now/ 29 Mar 12


I'm almost afraid to ask this question,b/c I know there's really no one definitive answer - but - what are some standard specifications you need on a rasonably priced laptop - say in $5-700 priced range.

how much ram bytes, does this techonphobe need? Any particular brands to try or stay away from- should one go full size, or get one of those smaller ones.

laptop would be used to browse web, do email, write on word processing, possibly record a rudimentary CD, and be portable (how long should a battery hold a charge if it goes to barnes and noble for an afternooon?)

have at it kids, and while you're giving suggestions   to this twentieth century technoignoramus; why did all the caps go into lower case today?
