Hello mates, I'm going to participate to a Startup Weekend , an event for Marketers, Designers, Developers etc , to get together, create an idea and launch a business. Peter Sunde (co-founder of ThePirateBay and Flattr Founder) is going to be there as well .. This event is going to be on December 2 and I don't even know if I will be able to get a Laptop for my self .. right now , I'm not even being able to save for my own needs (such as clothes) due to the credit debt , so I had around 450 euro on my bank account but I gave half of them to my dad to pay the debt for this month , so I'm really stuck now , with no choices at all .. I've already paid for the ticket and I got it, but I don't have clothes .. I mean , it's going to be cold, I will have to travel to the capital of the country , so I can't really go there with random clothes that I wear on home & school and shoes that i'm repairing day by day .. So I just thought , what would you suggest me .. I know it's a really great opportunity for me but I don't know what to do .. I won't ask my dad to return my money but I will try to borrow them somewhere if I can , If I can't find them .. I just won't go to the event, because without a Laptop , I can't practice any thing. If I will be able to get the money somehow until the December 2 , then i'll try to buy a Laptop but I just don't know which one .. what would you suggest me ? 1) DELL Inspiron N5110 (480 Euro) 2) ASUS K53E (420 EURO) 3) ASUS K53SC (470 Euro) I don't really know which one I should get - If I have the chance to. I will need it for IM and every-day use. I'm not a Gamer so I won't need hardcore graphics or anything like that .. but I may do some simple video editings. The prices are very close with each other so please suggest me which one would be more stable for every-day use .. I'll work very hard to get out of the situation so I might use it for over 10 hours a day Thanks alot, Best wishes !
