price difference between these options is typically

in regards to how much memory you will need, is
directly tied to your needs and budget.
The last things to consider are the "bells and whistles"

web cam, anti-virus software, or blue tooth capabi-

within the parameters of a budget is very important.
If you can follow the steps that are outlined above,
your purchase process will be easy. Just know how
much you would like to spend, and what kind of
functionality you would like, and you are well on
your way to a sensible purchase that will give you
everything you need in your new laptop.
