I'm going to be getting a laptop for ESL, and wanted to at least match the specs of a 13 inch Macbook pro, which would mean 500gb harddrive and 4 gb of memory, and an i3 processor. I could get that in a Dell or Asus for pretty cheap and for a little bit more I can get 750 gb and 6gb memory, or for 620 bucks i could get a Dell with 8gb and 1 tb hardrive. I would get at least an i5 processor and I could get that plus the macbook specs for 480 in an Asus k series. I could spend 600 and get 6gb and 750gb in an Asus u series, or spend 620 and get 8gb and 1tb in a Dell Inspiron. Is there enough of a benefit in the 750 harddrive over the 500 to make it worth an extra $120? I would just be using it for the web, movies, and whatever I may need it for for teaching? Your advice would be appreciated, thanks. Also, do you recomend Asus over a Dell Insprion. My main concern is that it last for as long as possible. I've had my Dell desktop that I'm using right now for about 7 years, and my friend's Dell laptop lasted for like 5 years, so I have gad a good track record with Dells lasting a long time. But it would be fun to get something new, especially if everybody says its better.

sorry, it said my connection timed out, and it didn't appear to go through, but apparently it did, hence the double post

Mods, you can delete this thread, if that's how it works. It's a double.
