One laptop available at Costco meets
those criteria. It’s the Hewlett-Packard
dm4-1063cl (item #614890). This high-performance laptop features the new
Intel Core i5 series processor—one of the
company’s fast and energy-efficient new-generation processors.
With a 14-inch LED screen, the HP dm4-
1063cl is just the right size for students. And
it comes with an optical drive to read CDs
and DVDs—all at a very good price.
I suggest you check one out at your
local warehouse or online at Costco.com.
It’s a good tool to help the student in your
family make the grade. C
