Hi. I was at Costco with my mom today, and I carefully hinted at my desire for a Leader Ironhide for Christmas. Mother, disapproving of the hobby, said no. She did, however, say I could get something else. A laptop. Thing is, I have no idea what I want/need. All I know is I don't want one of those pissy netbooks that don't even have full Windows 7. I dunno if I need a mac or a PC, don't know what I need for, well, anything, really. All I know is robots, computers are beyond my level. I'm a girl, I'm in tenth grade, I require internet, I want as much as I can get for the price range. (500$ canadian.) I had a mac for almost four years, and I found it lacking. (It wasn't even mine, I got it from my old school and they blocked all the fun shit) it looked like this: (And yes, I'm aware macs don't run on Windows 7.) Any suggestions? Brands? Computer gut preferences? Mac, PC, Linux? I'm on Bestbuys site staring at pictures of laptops that all look the same to me... I apologize in advance for my failure at nerding.
