What are your opinions on laptops? I want a decent one but a cheap one. All I do is surf the net. I'm not a gamer but I do like to have something for pictures and a webcam.
I've read that 2 years is the average life span of a lap top and the two that I have are just past the 2 years and are giving me so many problems. I don't want to pay money to fix them I'd rather just get new and not have to keep paying to fix them. I don't buy old cars either. I like what I have to work and not worry about them breaking down.
What I have now are a Dell and an Asus. The Dell was I think 6 hundred something and the Asus was just over 500 I think.The Dell had more software but it was for things I didn't use.
I just went to Best Buy and saw some really cheap ones (just under 400) but I'm worried that those are....well...cheap :laugh:

Anyway...your two cents please :)

Sound like what you want is prolly a netbook. They're small, light, portable, long battery life & basically just built for (like you said) browsing.

Can I plug my printer into one and can I have my iTunes on it? How small are they? I don't want it too small so that I can't read the screen ( I'm gettin old ya know :unsure-1: )

Toshiba is generally a good choice.

Two years? I've had mine for nearly 6 and its still going strong!

What you should do is get an external hard drive to store all your stuff on, back up the drivers and then when performance suffers reinstall the operating system.

Practice on one of the old laptops until your comfortable doing it. It might sound difficult but its really just time consuming more than anything.

I got a Toshiba too--a little less than a year ago when I went back to school. It's been great, especially for the price.

Fair enough. Just think what else you could do with $500 though!

If you are intent on sticking with a PC, then Sony or Toshiba are your best bets.
