I am considering getting a nice laptop for my daughter. Any people here experinced at being young that can tell me what's better? With a cd/dvd (like Envy14) or without a cd/dvd (like Envy15) Cheap, middle (like HP Pavilion) or Apple like (Envy)? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I know you said you were partial to HP laptops, but you may also want to check out the Dell Studio 15. I think it will be a great fit for your teenage daughter. It has a fast processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive space. This laptop will be perfect for schoolwork, internet surfing, and watching movies. It is also not too heavy to lug around at 5.5 lbs, but still has a nice sized screen. It's also available in several fun colors.

What do you think?

Cheers,
Isabella

Hi,

The Dell Studio XPS 16 is another great choice, especially if she will want to play more graphic-intense games eventually or do some video editing. It is a great multimedia laptop!
