College student laptop

I am going away to college next year I am looking into getting a laptop. I want something not too expensive but still a good quality comp, and mabey having it small. Dell copmuters are what I am llooking at because Macs are too pricey for me. I honestly dont know a lot about computers so I help in picking. I looked at the INSPIRON Mini 12, are those any good?

Thanks

dont buy a mini, you need a laptop for at least 4 years of college and that means you need memory and a fast processor to last.

get an hp, they are the best out in the pc category.

Quit spreading lies.

OP wait until right before classes start to get a laptop you will get more bang for your buck and you can take advantage of student discounts.

Hp is not the best laptop manufacturer. There really isn't one they all have good laptops and bad laptops, sometimes you get CS from heaven or hell it's a crapshoot really.

For me personally its Lenovo>Dell>HP>Toshiba

I haven't had experience with any other laptop manufacturers but lenovo has always had good reviews from everyone I've talked to and my dad's lenovo is definitely one of the nicest most durable laptops I've seen.

Stick with lenovo, dell, asus makes some nice laptops. Ask again a week or two before your semester starts.
