  1. Hello, I need a new laptop and I'm not quite sure where to start because I know nothing about computers. I know that I need something that is very durable because I move my laptop a lot. I do a lot of music downloading, so I guess I need something with plenty of memory, I'm not quite sure. I was reading that it was good to get an external hardrive to add on to the internal hardrive, but I don't know if that's hard to do. I was thinking of going through Dell, but not sure if that is the best bet. If anyone can give me some tips and recommendations, that would be great! Thank You

    How about you look at the three "new laptop" threads just a couple of inches below this one?

    Should I get that external hardrive or is it not recommended? I don't see any recent threads discussing that.

    You can always buy external storage later when the need arises. Just concentrate on the laptop first.
