    I start University in September and just wondered what a good, decent priced laptop would be.
    I currently have a HP laptop with 4.0GB of memory and a Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4500 @ 2.30 GHz

    Is this good enough for University? Thanks!

    If all you want it for is typical student fare, then it's fine.

    If not, or you still want to get a new one, what's your budget?

    any laptop is fine, what will you be using it for, browsing internet during lectures and writing the odd notes?! i took an nc10 and then an nc150 for portability and that was a comp sci degree, it was fine

    A macbook would be a pretty decent choice, I used to be an icynic but ever since I took the plunge and just bought one - I have kinda loved it.
    They're really just very nice to use, I chose to push up the specs a little but I'm sure the original ones would've done fine really.

    They're not a bad choice, popular amongst students

    I noticed, they seem like a wise choice especially because we use the in college for Final Cut and whatnot. Thank you! Do you study Media by any chance?
