Battery life is one of my concerns. Should it be? I expect that more people bring laptops to law school classes than UG. Do law schools design classrooms for this? Are there generally more outlets where one can plug-in his/her laptop? I ask because it will determine whether or not I go for a high-powered CPU. I know I'd be using this thing mostly for word processing, but I SIMPLY CAN'T STAND A SLOW CPU. I want four freaking cores.
I realize most of you have only attended one school
canand can't speak for law schools in general.
Better get a solid state drive then. HDDs are often the primary bottlenecks on modern comps.
Sorry if someone already mentioned!
