    Hi All,
    I am looking to buy a laptop that will primarily be used for AutoCad,
    Excel & Internet. My problem is there are a too many choices out there
    for me and I don't know enough about which one is more suitable than
    Anyone out there have some advice on which laptops would be good for
    what I describe?

    Most laptops will run the applications you describe these days - even
    the cheap ones.

    Suggest you get one with a 17" screen so that narrows it down a bit.

    How much do you have to spend? this is a big factor for most people!

    Other factors are size, weight and battery life.

    f you can give your thoughts on the above it may be easier to
    recommend something.

    Thanks for the input. I was hoping to get out the door for under
    $1,000. Hopefully I will be able to find one that it isn't too slow
    after I load my software on to it.
