    Re: New Laptop

    If you are not interested in the potability of a laptop i.e your not going to be taking your computer for walks. Then it has to be a base unit plenty more power for your bucks.
    Why people buy laptops and then leave them on a desk and never move them is beyond me. Also you will be limeted with specs for your money if you need a 17" screen.

          Re: New Laptop

          Being a retired "Techie in computers" I take note of who the other Techies buy in Laptops, "Toshiba" ! because they are noted for fewer problems. Having said that, I have probably used the Laptop about 10 times this year, so I most likely will not replace it when its gone

          BUT I use my big PC Tower box more - with a 20" Hanns:G fab monitor !

          I buy "Bare Bone" bundles from Novatech and upgrade the inside of my "Tower Box" - (recycle!) - Novatech can do this for you , if you like ! to your spec! BUT its not difficult - goes together a bit like LEGO THESE DAYS !

          My spec is always the same: Highest spec of all the bits + MAX RAM for photography downloading and editing ... and 2 x Internal Hard Drives C: and D: then 2 x Maxtor external 250 Gb drives

            I had a top of the range Toshiba 17" screen laptop (Qosmio) and had nothing but troubles with it, mostly with the graphics card. Twice it went for repairs and twice it worked for a few months then failed again.

            Personally, I now buy from Dell. They may well be a bit more expensive than other manufacturers but their machines are well built and, most importantly, their customer service is top notch, even when the machine is out of warranty.
