    Hey Richard-

    Thanks for helping to educate people what to look for when buying a laptop. It seems that so many buy a laptop for the wrong reasons (usually buying into flashy ads or glossy covers) and not for what is actually under the hood. Once a person knows what they want in a laptop in regards to screen size, processor speed, memory etc it can be hard to zero in on laptops that meet these needs because there are so many laptops on the market. Microsoft’s has come up with a tool that helps people filter out the clutter and focus on only laptops that meet their needs. The tool is called Laptop Scout and it is free for everyone to use. Take it for a spin: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-laptop-scout/default.aspx
