buying a laptop in about 30 minutes and need a recommendation
Posted on 2012-08-10
I am buying a laptop and would like to get one with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and using primarily for business (no gaming or stuff like that). I am a tax accountant and will be using the Microsoft Office, Tax programs, internet.
What do you recommend? The company I am working for is buying and I will be using it to do their tax compliance which I do at least partially remotely from another town. I also probably need to get a piece of hardware to do backups since I have this fear that I will lose the data (I am the only one with the tax files or programs and the tax software is stand-alone and not on a server so I need to make sure I have a duplicate, hopefully that will do an automatic backup every night and ideally in real time. Don't mention Carbonite because I will not do business with them, but I could also see getting a subscription for online backup in addition to an external drive to backup as well.
Please tell me soon because the store I am going to closes in about an hour and a half (Microcenter-unless someone has a better idea). One person recommended the Lenova I-5 I believe. Also, I hope they will install extra memory for the 64 bit application because I had to for my old Lenova Ideapad Y510.
