Before you buy the most important things
1. How will it be used? If its internet shopping top of the line processor and high resolution monitor are a complete waste of money.
2. What is my budget? Know how much you have to spend and focus the money on key areas. Don't add a blue tooth option and extra battery if your #1 use is to watch Netflix. Use that money on the video card and RAM.
3. Where will I use it?
Do you work on the go doing light tasks? Netbook. Are you in an office doing spread sheet and presentations for clients - higher end laptop. Are you just using it for gaming? - get a job!
I recommend knowing more about yourself than the technology. Know how it will be used, how much money, what you will do, how much travel. THEN look to see which key aspects of technology are critical to meeting your needs.
I bought 1 laptop for myself in the last 3 years. I knew what I needed and wanted so I didn't have to buy a dozen new gadgets. I have helped dozens of employees, friends, family buy tablets, netbooks, laptops, desktops, smart phones, etc.. I focus on their critical needs then tie it to the technology that best meets their needs on their budget.
