All I use my laptop for is the following:
school work (word, excel, powerpoint)
Sometimes I do all at once, and I'd like it so it doesn't lag. What do I need? I figure I need 1GB of RAM, since I have 512 now and it lags. But uh, what's good for a processor?
I don't do online gaming like WoW or anything, and I don't watch movies, just the occasional highlight or youtube clip.
If that is all you do why don't you shove 2 gigs of ram in your current computer and call it a day. Or at minimum boost your RAM to 1.25 gigs. Check out newegg.com for memory upgrades.
IMO, now is not the best time to upgrade to a new notebook.
