Topic: Paper review criteria
June 19, 2019 / By Gwen Question:
I recently owned a Acer Laptop which tottally bombed out on me, mother board fried and my LCD lites went out. I need something better then an Acer. Ive been told to get one of these HP/ Gateway/ Macbook/ Dell.... But which one is better? I type lots of papers, including presentations and I know programs take up alot of spaces so I need something with room yet at the same time is lite in weight and not to bulky as well as clear with long battery life...... Any suggestions?
Oh I usually keep all my music on it as well ....

I would recommend you to check out ProCompare.com (http://procompare.com/top/notebooks).

They also have a cool personalization slider that lets you personalize the results based on the criteria that are most important to YOU.

You can just skip the SSN and pin in your application form. as an international student you are not eligible for federal loans, work study or grants. The only scholarship you can get are the universities' own financial aid prgram and even that vaires from college to college, some colleges are open to all applicants when it comes to financial aid, but some are not at all...
the only way you can get a good scholarship or aid is by doing super good in your SATs, because most competitive schools do offer generous aid to international students, and those schools often have very high standards of standarized test scores and essays. (and dont forget about the TOEFL, thats pretty darn important too..)
Basically any laptop will do what you need it to.
Why not get another Acer? Was it an old machine? Was it subjected to greater than normal stress?
"HP/ Gateway/ Macbook/ Dell..."
are not computers - they are companies that sell different models of computer. If you were in the market for a car, you wouldn't accept "get a ford/honda/toyota/Nissan", you'd want info on specific models.
I'd suggest getting a budget laptop from a company you can trust. Different people have had different experiences with the same companies - making fans and haters for Dell, HP, Gateway, etc. Ask friends who own laptops what their experience is.
You don't need to keep your music on the laptop - ypu can archive it to a flash drive or an optical disc like DVD-R or a Micro card and keep it on your phone.

It will be pretty much a personal preference on manufacturer. I myself like and have used Dell, HP and Toshiba, if you went with any of these I am sure you would be happy. Any new laptop will have more than enough horsepower for things such as Microsoft Office or music etc. I have used but not owned a Mac book and have been very impressed with them as well, my only concern would be the availability of software for it. If you are sure you would have access to all the software you would need for a Mac book, then I personally would go that route. I used to be a big fan of pc based computing but lately I have been very impressed with the Apple offerings.

I think HP will be better... HP is not the best laptop, but its not that expensive too... and when u buy it, look how many GB have... Usually they have over 150GB and thats enough for music and typing.

Unless you have a prepayment clause which specifies the quidelines for prepayment, you should be able to pay them back with perhaps a few fees for paperwork.
