Hi I haven't had a new laptop in years and am not sure how to select the best possible laptop for my price range.
I just found out about the ultrabooks and was wondering if the processors are fast enough for what I want to do since it seems like they are slower.
My budget is $800. I've been looking around and it seems that ASUS is one of the top brands. Black friday and cyber monday is coming up which makes it harder to choose a laptop since I'm not sure where the best deals are.
I was looking at the ASUS vivobook S400 but I'm not sure if its worth it.
I will be using it for programming, general web surfing/internet usage, and not for gaming since I have my PC already.
I want a 14-15inch screen, 5+ hours battery life, and it to be really light(ultrabook preferred?). Discrete graphics doesn't matter, 4gb+ ram. Do you guys know if Windows 8 is bad for programming/multitasking?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know Quizzical and other members of this community gave me a lot of help last time to help choose PC components which made my building experience very smooth. Thanks again
