  1. It's been six months since our last laptop buying guide update and while the scene has changed a bit, we’re still waiting on the inevitable implementation of Intel's Core i7 in notebooks through the course of 2009. Regardless of what's to come, the Core 2 Duo is still holding strong and probably will for a while, so now is as good of a time as any to make a notebook purchase.

    In a similar fashion to the last guide, we will attempt to cover the ideal specifications for a few popular price points and system varieties. The most obvious addition is a section dedicated to netbooks, which have been able to create a segment of their own, moving further away from the more expensive ultra-portables.

    * Desktop replacement notebooks
    * Budget/Value-minded laptops
    * Ultra-portable laptops
    * Netbooks

    Please leave your feedback here. Thanks!

    • battery life {just can't get too much!}
    • weight {gota lug this thing around}
    • output devices (vga, s-video) for presentations
