I am really wanting to get a laptop and I think I might have my husband on board, too. We have a desktop that would still be our primary computer, but I want a laptop for the convenience and mobility of it. It would be used for videos much, mostly scrapbooking, word processing, family history etc. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg either. What laptop would you recommend and why? Also, what are the components you can't live without and the ones you don't think are very necessary?
