  • I use the freeware for anti-virus and spyware and malware protection.

    It sounds like you don't need anything more than a netbook. They're the cheapest and easiest to carry around, if you can stand the shrunken keyboard.

  • As a Mac user, I'm bias and would definitely suggest either a Macbook or Macbook pro. As far as PC's, probably HP, Dell, or Gateway. Toshiba's aren't bad either. Stay away from Acer's, everyone I know (including me) has had problems with them. Also Sony Vaio's have hardware issues and aren't a top 10 laptop to buy. Really though, if you're looking to buy a new computer, do your research on brand names and models that suit your needs.

  • I wouldn't purchase a netbook, especially if you plan to play a game on it. They are really slow. I would go to Best Buy to look and ask questions. Depending on the game you want to play, you may need a more beefy computer with a better than standard video card.
