First year college student

Any suggestions for a laptop for a first year college student? Something of good quality but will not break the bank?? We sent him off with an HP Pavilion 4300 - 6 years old - and it did not last 2 weeks!

If he's interested in a convertible laptop I want to put in a plug for Gateway convertible tablets. I'm on my second one and find them to be reliable, sturdy and work well. The first one I had ran XP and was a little glitchy with the pen/screen interaction. But now I am running Vista and find it to be superior and satisfactory in that regard. The computer offers a lot of power, features and storage for the a much less price than competitors. I recently tried an HP TX1420us thinking that I wanted it has a large drive and oodles of features. But the pen/screen interaction was beyond HORRIBLE. One could not take a half a page of notes on the screen before getting serious writers cramp. I learned that this was the way they were and not a flaw with the one I had. Awful. Plus, it was basically a cheap piece of crap with a screen/lid with way too much flex and an inferior pivot hinge. The Gateway has a nice study pivot hinge. And depending on the model, a magnesium case. Perhaps a 12" screen would suit a student better. Mine is 14" and I would hate to have to lug it very far as it's on the heavy side. My main complaint.

I would consider buying a Dell Inspiron Notebook from the Dell Outlet Store. The Web Address is

Here you can find refurbished machines that carry the same warranty as new ones at a very low price. Occasionally they also have scratch and dent laptops that work perfect and are new at a good discount. Dell also has excellent tecnical support with experts who can assist you with any problem that may come up.
