I'm going to get a laptop and need to know what to buy.
I'm going to be using it at school ( software engineering ) and at home.
I want to be able to use it for media such as converting videos and want to be able to have multiple media applications working at once.
I'd prefer it to have Vista. ( they all seem to have it anyway )
May do a spot of gaming like Halo 2 vista or something.
I don't want it to get bogged down when running multiple apps.
I'm looking in the price range of $1500 - $2000 USD.
I'd prefer to get a Dell or IBM laptop as I can get money off them through contacts.
Any suggestions would be great.
