It's been a long time coming and we're proud to announce that Geek.com's Laptop Buyer's Guide has finally been updated. The last time we released a version of this the Pentium 4 Mobile was the hottest thing going, 512 MB of RAM was more than enough, and Vista was still a long way off.
The updated guide goes through a notebook piece by piece so you can find what you are looking for and then customize it so you get just what you want. By using the recommended gear, you can ensure your notebook won't be outdated any time soon, though the minimum guidelines will be great for a basic system, such as for work or for a student.
The last part of the guide ties into Geek.com's real-time pricing engine to get you up-to-date prices on all sorts of hardware. While you will probably be interested in buying a notebook and not building one, these links can help you see how much individual components are selling for, which can be helpful for comparing to the upgrade price of laptop manufacturer, or even for upgrading a laptop that you already own.
