    Default Where to get value for money Notebook

    Anyone know where I can get cheap, value for money note book ?
    Purpose & requirment : For photographic use one lah, plus some Excel, Words and Powerpoint, not mean for game or internet.

    I remember last time I saw one notebook for military use (not sure about it),
    the Panasonic ruggy laptop, silver color one, small, compact and can resist minimun impact. Anyone know how much?

    Twinhead or Sotec will be your choice. Can expect less than 2K

    Go Yahoo auction for a second hand one. I personally believe that it is ok to buy second hand electronic stuffs, most important to get one that still under warranty.

    The best laptop you can get for just under $2k is the Apple iBook 12". It will do all the stuff you listed very nicely. And the screen is superb. My friend had a Sotec but it failed after 3 months, though your mileage may vary.

    Totally agreed. At the slightly below $2k price point, the apple ibook represents the best value.

    Its not that hard to convert to mac... I took only one night to get used to the mac interface.

    go to SGL marketing at SLS at 2nd floor, ask for a 12" white notebook that reads ibook G4, that is the one, best value for money if you need not need ipods or so. then ask if the sales ppl for 512 ram and your software, if got student or teasher pass even cheaper.

    I'm a new convert as well. Love the Sleep feature on the Powebook by just flipping down the screen. One thing, getting 'cheap' software for Mac can be quite a bitch, if you get what I mean.

    does microsoft office documents works and interchangeable perfectly btw ibook and windows XP?

    How about those engineering software: AutoCAD? Can work on ibook?

    If you can only have one notebook, is ibook a good choice? Need the notebook for work and home leisure.

    I am unsure thus I chose a Dell...

    Always buy from trusted source, if things sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
