I am looking at purchasing a new laptop for the following:
Visual Studio Development
Heavy Database Queries
Office - Excel, Access, Outlook etc.
Accounting Database Work
All of these are done over a network.
Based on the above I am trying to figure out which laptop would perform the best. I need at least a 17" and have looked at everything from the HP8730 to the Dell XPS and the Sony AW Series (which only runs 64-bit). Your help is appreciated.
