I am currently enrolled in college and am taking a GIS course and would like to get some suggestions as to what laptop I should purchase. From what I've ascertained so far is that it should have a very powerful processor, fast hard drive, lots of RAM, a good quality graphics card, and the typical port connections. Having a firewire connection would be great as well as being easily portable. The ability to play games on it isn't a high priority for me. I'm purchasing the laptop for arcGIS and cartography purposes, everything else is secondary.
One last thing about the perspective laptop, I would prefer that it be advanced enough so that it's not too out dated by the time I get it home!
