If you were buying a new computer which one would you buy? And why?
My laptop is on the fritz and will be getting a new one maybe this weekend. Wanted to pick the glp communities mind on which brand you would you get. Which processor would you want and other components. Looking for one that is durable and last a long time without problems.

Or if your laptop died today would you get another one or just get a tablet?

Thanks!

I've switched over to laptops. It's all about being mobile for me....

Get one with Windows7, I hear 8 is crap. As for laptops I hear there are lighted keyboards. I'd get one so u can keep the lights off. I've got a Lenovo and like it a lot....

Depends on how much money you're willing to spend. These days the IPad is really good and travels well. IF you want a laptop - get a mac book pro.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Re: If you were buying a new computer which one would you buy? And why?
I definitely love my mac...had a dell in the past and a mac is just so much more user friendly. But I also have an iPhone as well and love that.

So my vote would be a mac...either desktop or laptop.

if you need a used one or want to sell an old one this place www.giztopia.com does both...they have a great reputation..

.there was another site that kind of scammed you with what you were actually paid...they said it would be up to 150.00...meanwhile I sent in my old computer and only got 50.00...this was before I found out about giztopia though. live and learn

Yup,, got me an Alienware 14 with the latest i7 chip, 16gigs of RAM, and all the other upgraded goodies,, fuckin love that bitch,, ran me 2k though, ouch ;P
Nice fuckin laptop though, Next time I think I'll try out one of them Razors,, them bitches are slick.

As for OP,, depends on what you need it to do,, and I wouldn't get a tablet unless maybe one of the latest Microsoft Surfaces,, but those are expensive as hell,, and those Lenovo Yoga Pros (laptop that flips back keyboard for tablet like function) are pretty sweet too, but again, running close to that $2k mark,, if you just want a good computer for work that can run pretty much anything you through at it,, I'd get one of the newer Lenovo Ideapads,, they're mid range on price, (1k-1.5k, even cheaper if you get bottom specs), light weight, aesthetically appealing, and powerful (with like the y400, y500, y510p, in i5 or i7 chips,, but I will admit my preferences are geared more towards gaming/editing) Either way, I'd say go Ideapad w/ Windows 7.

Fuck HP, fuck Toshiba, FUCK MACBOOK!!! go Windows 7, Lenovos are good, better than Dell I'd say, you'll probably see more older Lenovos and Dells around than any other laptop, and for a reason. They just work.
