There is something going on in technology that has the techies hot and bothered. Gizmodo has an article talking about the new Haswell processor. It’s nice having fast technology and long battery life, graphics is probably less important to you for your work unless you are a graphics related business. But for small business you need basic function and a great price. Here is what makes this great for you, as mentioned in the second to last paragraph existing technology prices will drop and potentially a lot.
So if you are in the market for a laptop and can wait a bit then wait until these new ones are released. A bargain will come your way.
