Only thing is, it only has a 250gb hard drive and a 2gb memory. Is this enough? You can bump up both these things but then it gets into the 800 range and at that point I would just buy the bundle (Mac I think) for conveinance.
Any input would be great, was hoping to save a couple 100 bucks, but would hate for it to hurt me at all.
(oh and I get an additional 17% off the price)
If you are just talking about law school purposes. What computer you get is very close to irrelevant. All you need is a word processor with a decent keyboard that has enough memory to hold about 100 documents. So Im sure the minimum package is fine. Personally I have a macbook and so do (probably) most people. It never has issues and is overall a great computer. I'd recommending getting one, but a cheaper dell is not going to hurt you in the least.
Did you get the package through the school? Either way, would you reccomend that knowing you need to buy a comp either way?
The software for law school (that is claimed to be pre-installed on their comps) is that large? thats the only reason I was wondering about memmory and hard drive.
I have been going back and forth between Dell and Apple for a while. The only reason I was leaning towards Dell is because thats what I have at work, oh and they can be cheap. I donno lol
