Need a Laptop
August 28, 2006
Ok I was just reading Marzouq's blog and he was talking about lithium batteries. Then I remembered I have been wanting to buy a laptop for quite some time now, but put it on hold cos I was out of the country. Now, I posted a while ago the specifications of a Toshiba laptop I found and asked for feedback, but NOBODY replied!!! So be useful please, and comment.................I said pleeease :P Here are the specs. By the way, click below to check out Marzouq's blog.

Specifications:

Intel Centrino 2.0 GHZ
512 MB DDR2 RAM
60 GB Hard Disk
15.4" Crystal Wid Screen True Bright
DVD-Writer Multi Recorder
Integrated Wireless LAN
256 MB SVGA Card
56 KBPS Fax Modem Card
10/100 LAN Card
S-Video Port
Firewire Port
3 USB Ports
Internal Card Reader
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
For 499 KD

I also found an HP Compaq with a little less specifications except has bluetooth for 385 KD.

I saw the Macbook yesterday but it was for over 900 KD. That is a bit too much for me. And if you have any suggestions, I am all ears. Thanks.

    2 thing need improvement..

    Ram has to be at least 2Gig.. Im recommending this for long term use.. 512 is horrible! and 60 Gigs is not enough go for at least 100 GB if its available!

    As of right now I recommend you look into Fujitsu laptops!

    HP is horrible please avoid that! And forget about bluetooth because you arent really going to use it that much.. I know lots of people who say they will, but they never do.. so dont even bother with the bluetooth!

    Anything core Duo is good, Merom is coming out today so i would wait. Merom is Core Duo 2. but i do agree with 3baid, just get a Macbook Pro and you can run both windows and OSX. Stay away from HP, Compaq, Gateway. Toshiba is good too, but make sure its Core Duo at least. Good Luck

    You can get the same for 220 KD ... Dell from Eureka in Salmiya, i agree with the others, more RAM and HD space, if you have the cash get a sony or a Mac Book

    you could get a black macbook with a core duo, 512 ram, 13 inch, and 80 gb hard drive for kd 550 from z macshop. (zmacshop.com). Its great for general use and plus if your not a mac user you can always install windows using bootcamp.

    hope this was helpful
