So consider this post your chance to brag, cry, or generally show off all of those great computers that support our everyday habits.
I'm wondering mostly what type of equipment people have. More specifically, for those of you with notebooks - how much did they cost, is the battery life decent, and how do they handle heavy computations from gaming to Visual Studio or .Net if thats your thing?
And if your wondering, I'd love something light enough to carry to class regularly, under 1,500: capable machine that can handle multi-tasking and development software, decent battery life, and if at all possible a non-integrated video card (This is probably too much to ask for, but i can dream.) THANKS!!!!
