Finally any PC's to stay away from?

For e-mail, gaming, and music it sounds like you may do just as well with an iPad.

If you really want a non mac laptop, I suggest Toshiba.
I bought Toshiba laptops for all of my kids, and several friends have them too. All of them have had problems with it overheating. They've all now ditched Toshiba.
I agree. My first laptopwas Toshia and had same problem.
Really? I've owned one along with my Macs since 04, and it doesn't overheat at all. Maybe the new ones have problems. Prior to that I'd always had bad luck with HP, so I ditched them. I guess it just depends what batch you get. Never had any problems with Mac though.
I just bought my new laptop a couple of weeks ago, and I think it was a really great bang for the buck. I paid $433.89, and that included expedited shipping.
Here's the one I bought: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00400OSJ0
So far I'm really happy with it.
Look underneath the pic where it says "81 New from..." That will give you a list of a ton of sellers that sell the same product at different price points, which is why I got mine cheaper. (Base price was around $415.) I bought it from g-z store and they were great. Ordered it on a Friday afternoon and had it on Monday.
Stay away from DELL!!! Long story and You couldn't pay me to have another one!
In regards to your question of which browser to use...
use Firefox browser.
I bought a Compaq with many bells and whistles for $328. It has tons of ram and room and I use Chrome exclusively. I've never used such a fast browser!
Google is coming out with it's own laptop. It's got a diff OS and it's really just a browser that loads in 7 seconds when you turn it on. The user has to use cloud services, which I wouldn't like, I like having my own software that doesn't go down. But for students it might be a good machine.
IE 9 RC has very fast loading time and has similar features like firefox. Current firefox 3.6 shows some conflict with flash and other media plugins, so wait for firefox 4 release.
Gaming Laptops - Dell, Toshiba, Alienware. Note : Gaming laptops usually suffer from overheating and battery issues.

I have always used Internet Explorer and have just dealt with all of its little 'quirks' but I can't take it anymore! I can't even open capsules now or delete any to work on a hub. So how do I change to something...

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?
by innerspin4 years ago
Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried...

We're just looking for a basic laptop--no gaming, no movie-watching, or anything like that. Just one for researching and writing hubs, that's all, with a bigger size screen. Oh, and fairly reasonable in...
