We have a nice apartment with about 470 square feet to cool, and we need a portable unit because of the ledge-less windows in the main room. We're looking at the 12,000 btu specification machines for the space, but we're not sure which brand to choose, much less which model. Anecdotes, opinions, and suggestions are very welcome. We're hoping to spend $500 or less. What brand and model(s) should I look at? What features should I consider (one vs two hoses, etc)? What say you, my mefi brethren?
