    Win7 laptops recommended

    Hello,

    Anyone recommend any good laptops

    They will be used by staff to run whiteboards etc

    We want to be using Windows7 Pro, trying to get away from downgrading to xp

    Thanks

    p.s we usually get toshiba sat pro from misco for new laptops, just wondering if HP or anything are better choice

    HP's Compaq 610's are pretty good. Supplied several to local schools for staff and had no problems with them.

    Are you planning on running Windows 7 64-bit then? Not challenging, just curious.

    We got 20 Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-29C from Simon at CP for a VERY good price, with a RAM upgrade (had to manually install). They come with Vista Business, however toshiba are doing free upgrade disks to W7 Professional until April.

    Speak to simon for more info!
