Which brand
« on: Mon Jul 25, 2016 - 07:44:16 »
If you needed a new laptop that would be in the $500 to $600 range, or less...

And it was only used for emails, some file storage, pictures, Googling, and GC type things

What would you get.

This is my oldest Laptop... I have had problems from day one and not even my geek , who sold it to me
could find a fix. It is Lenovo

I will be typing or reading or whatever and it will just stop requiring a restart. I went for a year of that not happening then it is starting again. Very annoying..........

I do have another Dell and I am not really happy with it. I lose ISP connection on that one... also this one...
too often ( Think it is windows 10 issue)

Anyway... I am going to be looking around and am curious what you all like.

So I need to

If you won't need any special software, a Chromebook might meet your needs and save you cash.

One computer losing internet connection could possibly be a hardware issue, but if 2 laptops have the same issue, the problem is more likely to be your router.
Chances are you get another laptop and that too will drop connection.

If you only use your laptop for simple things like you describe, any laptop will do just fine.

I kind of wish I would have gone with a Chromebook a couple of months ago instead of this MacBook Air. I don't really think it's worth the hype.  I had just about decided on the Chromebook when a friend talked me into the MacBook. Oh, well.

I won't buy Apple products.  I prefer to keep more money in my pocket.

If you just need internet browsing, and some occasional word processing, etc go with a Chromebook.   OS is based upon the Chrome browser.

Besides my iPod shuffle, the Air is the only Apple product I own. I'm not big on fancy electronics at all. What sold me on the MacBook is everyone saying how it would long outlive a traditional windows device, and I'd get my money's worth. Meh.

Obviously I will go for HP within this budget. Because it's up to date and serve for long long time. I am really happy with it.
