Don't Know Which Laptop to Purchase? Ask Microsoft

SUMMARY: Microsoft's "PC Scout" offers suggestions on which laptop or netbook to purchase based on your needs.

In the market for a new laptop / netbook and not sure which one to buy? Or, do you have a friend / family member / coworker asking you that question and you're unsure how to answer? One option is to check out the Windows "PC Scout" for recommendations.

Simply select a category such as "Mobile Studio", "Power Gaming", or "Work from Everywhere" to view possible choices. You can further narrow your selections by choosing your desired price, screen size, or weight, and additional details are available allowing you to narrow by brand, processor, TV tuner capabilities, and other options.

Searching for laptops with the Windows PC Scout in the $800-$1700 range, 2.2-3 Ghz speed, 4GB+ RAM, and 250 GB+ storage. Depending on when you read this tip, such laptops may already be obsolete.
