As a graduation gift, my brother is getting me a laptop. I don't know much about computers, but the only preferences I have are: Windows XP lots of memory cd burner good battery life and just a good sized screen nothing too out of the ordinary. I'm gonna be doing a lot of digital art & photograohy on it as well, so it has to be able to handle photoshop and some other programs. Price doesn't really matter as long as I get something that'll last me a long time. But something cheaper wouldn't be a problem either. I'll even consider buying a Mac. I've never used one so I'm kinda hesitant, but if it's better, then i'll go for it. Help plz.
