|Hello all, newbie here.|
I'm buying my 1st laptop and after reading several reviews, I still have some doubts on each one to get:
A305-S6905 (3G,320HD) or A305-S6908(4G,250HD), both have Intel Graphics 4500 and some suggested it would be better to buy an HP with Intel X3100.
Would the Intel 4500 serve its purpose when running Adobe PS6 CS3, Windows Movie Maker, Macromedia Flash? It isn't for games, but video and webdesign.
I also liked the battery life of 6905 (32bit): 3.36hs vs 2.30hs s6908 (64bit). I don't know the 'bits' difference (I prefer XP), so would a downgrade save battery life? Also is it possible to install old programs on a 32bit (I bought some and wouldn't like to loose them).
Last question, I really liked the look (fusion with stripes and glossy keyboard, despite the fingerprints..), but does it fade or crack after a while, anyone heard of this? It seems a fine structure and I don't think on selling it for at least 3 years. Kinda desktop replacement.
I'm sorry about the noob questions but I'm confused already... Would anyone recomend another model (15" or 15"+ screen) from Toshiba, Asus or HP please? Any insights, opinions, critics are very welcome. Thank you!
