    Default I'm trying to select my next laptop, help!

    Hello everyone,

    I am a Computer Science major, and I am looking to pick up a new laptop for development purposes. The one I have now is intensely slow and old, so I need an upgrade. Please keep in mind that I am a poor college guy and on a bit of a budget, but I would like a machine that is going to do everything a CSci major would need to do before graduation without any hiccups. Some of the classes I am taking will be :

    Information & Systems Security
    Computer Architecture
    Object Oriented Java
    Systems Analysis and Design

    If you guys have any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated, as I do not know much about computer specs yet and I am hoping to become educated in the field as I go through the process of selecting my next machine.

    I'm not going to give examples because I am far from proficient as far as specs go, but I doubt you will be doing anything too computationally intensive. Most average computers nowadays should be more than sufficient. Others here can probably help you out as far as examples.

    something that has 2Gb or up memory and 1.8Ghz CPU would be enough to run your IDEs.
    [why are you annoyed with my sig?]
