Re: Question for Computer Geeks regarding new laptop!
Is it possible to put a new keyboard on the laptop?


Yea, probably.. a quick fix might be a keyboard that you can plug into USB. It might be a hassle dragging it around with your laptop, but at least you can then take the time on deciding what you really want to do.

It looks like I can get a new keyboard for around $50. I need to find a good computer tech store - not BestBuy, that can help me with this stuff.

Yikes! 50 bucks? I thought they were a lot cheaper.. like this one I found here:

Or check check out Newegg .. we buy a lot of things from them. Excellent, fast service. I don't go to places like BestBuy etc. unless there is some really cool deal on something.

Re: Question for Computer Geeks regarding new laptop!
Why would you get a Windows laptop instead of a Mac? Bad move IMHO.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 326428



Ya Know, I really despise people that think Mac or PC is better than the other. I run both, they both have problems. the Mac, IMO, however, is a toy compared to my PC Workstation.

That said i really don't like Vista and frankly mis Windows 2000, my server runs it and never, ever, crashes or needs a reboot.

Re: Question for Computer Geeks regarding new laptop!
Hello 2X

HP laptops seem to be the "best" buy at the moment...most "stuff" for your $$$... :)

Go to HP's website and you can order one with XP still in it (Refurbished Models) for about 10%-20% cheaper then new. These are new models, but because they were "pre-owned" they can't sell them as "new". Say a company buys a 500 of them, but only needs 480...they send the 20 laptops back, HP takes them and even though the box was never opened, they open the box, run the tests on them and put them back into the box and place them back on the market as "Refurbished"...still get the same warranty and all, as if it was new, which it is really. We have bought several of them this way...works out very nice!

Hope this helps and Merry Christmas hun!


Peace

Re: Question for Computer Geeks regarding new laptop!
anyone who has an older windows laptop considering upgrading to a newer model should try reforming their harddrive and installing PuppyLinux or DamnSmall. Do it just for the hell of it, what have you got to lose, you're probably going to basically trash the old laptop anyway, give it away or whatever. PuppyLinux runs so fast on old hardware you might reconsider buying something new.

Re: Question for Computer Geeks regarding new laptop!
I started out as a mac guy 20 years ago

went to a pc because it was in all the offices I worked in

I am going back to a mac for my home machine .

I run an ISP , Users just have all kinds for problems with Vista .

my 2 cents

This is why I want a new laptop with XP still on it! I doubt I will find any in the stores.

The keyboard I found was an actual gateway laptop replacement keyboard - not a usb external keyboard.
I'm not sure how to replace it myself though.
