My very trusty and old Dell Latitude C840 is offically perishing. At this point when trying to do a regular boot of Windows I get graphical glitches on the Windows XP splash screen and then a black screen. The laptop still works in safe mode but as my only mobile device I need to make some plans to replace it.
Though work I get some decent discounts on laptops from Apple and Dell. If I decided to purchase a Macbook Pro I could get about 8% off. That isn’t a great deal but removes sales tax then a few extra dollars off the list price. If I decided to go for a Dell I could save some extra bucks but in all honesty a Dell really isn’t as nice as a Apple.
Has anybody recently bought or come in poession of a laptop? I’m looking for recomendations and suggestions. At this point I don’t plan on buying a laptop ASAP but mostly just looking for ideas.
