Hardware Rationale:

Please keep in mind that balance is often the best approach when picking the right components for a laptop. You should balance processor speed with battery life. In addition, think about how you will use the machine. If you are using it for basic school work and web browsing stick to the recommended specifications. If you plan on doing a lot of movie editing, high-end gaming, or graphic design you may want to pick a model with a lot of ram, a fast processor and a bigger hard drive.
