It's been a while since I shopped for a laptop, but it's coming up on my current laptop's 6th birthday here soon, and it's getting a little bit sluggish.
Currently have a 2008 Macbook with an Intel Core 2 Duo clocked ridiculously low, with 2GB of RAM and a NVIDIA 9400M GS 512MB integrated chip. It's only got 150GB of space, which isn't enough anymore.
What I'm aiming for is an i7-2630QM, at least 6GB of RAM and a dedicated onboard chip. I'd like to keep it below $1,000, but I can probably afford to go over that.
Windows 7 would also be great to have, but having looked on both Amazon and Newegg, I can't seem to find a laptop that isn't pre-loaded with Windows 8. >_>
