    OK,

    So far my computer knowledge is limited to downloading things off Kazaa and getting my home desktop viruses.

    Before I go to school (in about 3 weeks) I will need a computer.

    The primary use will be for school / school projects. Im majoring in business, so I really don't need any super fancy A/V stuff. Just something simple and fast.

    It will be my ONLY computer, so it has to do everything I need a computer for.

    I would like to have a DVD/DVDRW, wireless internet card, etc.

    Id like to spend around $1,500.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I really don't know what to look for or where to start even.

    Thanks for your help! :hs:

    -Will

    Go check out some Dell laptops online. I'm not sure, but I doubt you'll get a DVDRW in a laptop. Even if you can get them, I know you won't get it for $1500.

    Get something Centrino based, it is fairly light weight, has wireless and has the Balzz to do what you want it to do. However it's going to be north of $1500 US for sure if you want a DVD burner included.
