Yesterday I was instructed to begin shopping for 9 laptops; 8 for a lab, one for myself. I'm currently surfing the web for good deals but have yet to find anything substantial. I have a few specs (15" display, at least 2 usb ports, wireless card, MS office), and told to not go to Best Buy. Best Buy has a bad reputation from the general public, but I've found if you know how to cut through the salesman crap it's not so bad.

I have an HP laptop I really like, It's probably my favorite brand at the moment. The 8 for the lab will have to be the same, all PC's. I was told to get whatever I wanted for myself. I hope that means a Mac, buf I think they'd probably want me to stick to a PC even though I could run Windows on the Mac.

If anyone has dealt with making big computer purchases and knows of any retailers I should look at or avoid, lemme know.

You might want to check out TigerDirect, (, they usually have really good deals. I've ordered computers from them in the past without hassle. Good luck!
