Well, I'm looking for a new/used laptop that will last me a few years. I ran across the article on the ASUS Z63A and while I would like to do a whitebook and like the styling of the Z63A, I'm wondering if that particlar chassis will last me for the next couple years. Other than that, can anyone suggest a good whitebook that can be completed for <$1000 ? I don't plan on using it for movies, just some music, and I'll probably install Linux. It will basically be a computer for taking notes and doing stuff for college. I'll use the computer in my sig for any gaming/movies etc. Also it has to be smallish and lightweight.
I also found a used prebuilt notebook built on the Z63A chassis (2GHz Intel Pentium M, 1x1GB RAM) for about $500. Is that a good deal?
To clarify, my main two questions are:
- Is the ASUS Z63A still a viable option for a college student?
- If not, what's a good whitebook that can be completed for <$1000 ?
