Thanks to everyone for the replies- all very helpful! Am still considering the Sony as im getting it in the US so its a hell of a lot cheaper than over here...otherwise am looking into all the other recommendations!
One last question, I was advised to go with the Intel core 2 processor as that is the latest..which is fine but decided to look into the Toshiba computors and alot of them run on a different processor ( AMD Turion 64- X2 dual core) am i being to fussy at looking at these details...or is there any difference between them?! The review on it said it wasnt that great a processor speed or something...
Hi..im about to start a PhD looking in the area of genetics and need to get myself a good laptop to last me for the next few years...Im no expert and a little confused with all the specifications there are!
I know i will need plenty of memory for statistics programs etc etc..can anyone currently doing their PhD tell me what are the specs of a standard good Laptop for a Phd...ie what hard drive and memory size?
I am currently torn between a Sony with 3GB memory and 250GB hard drive and an HP with 4GB memory and 250GB...i think the sony looks the better all round computer but the HP has more memory...is there really much difference!?
I just dont want to spend alot on a computer that wont be able to cope with my PHD!
any help would be much appreciated, thanks! :)
I've been considering a PhD and have been checking almost daily as the adverts are posted on jobs.ac/findaphd.com and still struggling to find something im interested in applying for...I need to be London/SE area so that limits my choice somewhat...should I be panicking that I havent yet gone throught the application process yet? how late do PhD applications run?
Help!im so lost, finished my Msc in Oct 2007 having done my research on control of mosquito borne diseases..took time off and then began job hunting but couldnt find anything suitable. Am now considering a PhD but feel apprehensive about the whole experience..i.e studying one thing for three years..what is that like? Although i am very interested in staying in the area of infectious disease..i have always been passionate about marine science and conservation I just cant decide which way to go! my head says PhD in control of disease a science which will provide a good career, BUT im scared of abandoning my interests in marine science!i have to make a decision because the phd will determine the direction of my career right?! help!
