Actually, I'd be grateful if you could basically change my entire technology-based existence...
Lower sixth student, word processes and edits photos a lot (not video though) so consequently needs ample storage space, I play a few online games but not particularly demanding ones so a decent graphics card? The one thing that I do need decent specs for is The Sims 2. I'm an addict, own all the expansion packs and if possible, would like to squeeze them all on my laptop, haha. It may be pretty unrealistic but my desktop computer is Windows 7 which isn't compatible with The Sims 2. Windows OS please, don't think I could work my way around a Mac!
Does not need to be particularly light or anything, it won't be travelling to college that often. I'd like a good battery life though (for power cuts and the rare occasions that I will be on the move with it.)
Budget: £700, though if it were possible to spend less than that that'd be great.
Now I don't really know where to start with this. I last bought a Sony one in '07, and it's lasted me until today, haha. 4GB was plenty as I don't really watch video, but surfing the net for a replacement now is proving tedious - they're all really quite expensive and all the non Apple products look quite ugly :/ The one that caught my eye was the recently released Samsung Galaxy one but it's really quite pricey for what I'd like to spend on an mp3, bearing in mind I need it as soon as possible as I want to take it on my Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition! So what do you guys suggest? Do I bite the bullet and just go for an iPod Touch? If that's the case, what is the best way to get it cheaper?
Budget: £However much the iTouch costs, lol. No more than that.
I'm really desiring a tablet computer to travel to college with, it seems to make note taking really speedy and it's light, not to mention entertaining...
Haven't got my heart set on an iPad. But if anyone is running a deal (say, where you buy an iPad and an iPod for a discount) I'd be up for that, otherwise perhaps the Samsung Galaxy tab? Or do I wait for the Microsoft Tablet to come out?
Anyway, I'd really appreciate any insight on these. Exams have kept me out of the tech loop for a long while, haha!
