I am needing to replace my personal laptop, and was needing some advise on what's the best "bang for my buck." I don't need one that has lots of bells and whistles. We mainly use it for oil and gas reports, bookkeeping, etc. I don't want to spend an arm and leg, but I also want to make sure I get one that has a sufficient amount of memory and space.
What is a good size (memory and storage) to look for? When looking at storage, what does the HDD mean? In Consumer Reports, it listed storage as same 640 GB; on something else I saw "GB HDD". Is this the same thing?
