    I want a new laptop, my current one has a f'ed up battery, so I can't use it without it being plugged in to a socket. Might as well upgrade instead of get a new battery

    i like it, takes a little getting used to, but i think it's pretty good. the only thing i'm having problems with right now is i had to buy Office 2007 for one of my classes and it continually says, "office has preformed an illegal operation and has to be shut donw."

    That happened to mine a few months ago too (dreaded blinking orange light on the Dell Inspiron), but I just ponied up some cash for a new battery on eBay. Cost me maybe $50, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than a new laptop.

    Mind you, I still want a new one too. :tongue:

    yeah, when my battery went, I wish I had looked on the bay instead of getting it straight from dell. would've saved 50%

    Eh, can't blame you, though. It's easy to just punch in your service tag at Dell's website and get the correct part instantly. I did that with RAM for a few Dell laptops just because I was too lazy to look elsewhere.

    Back to the main topic at hand...how are HP laptops anyway? I've heard mixed things about them. My next laptop will likely be a Dell, but I'm open to other options if they're worth it. Whenever I get a new lappy, I'm making sure to top it out with 4GB of RAM from the get-go, but that's hella expensive at the moment.

    i've never had a problem with HP anything, my dad got ah HP desktop about 7-8 years ago and hasn't had any problems with it, and so far i love my laptop(granted it's only 2 days old right now but still). i wasn't worried about processor speed, i dont' play newhere near as many games as i used to. but i wanted something that would last me a decent amount of time. i mean, just long enough (roughly 2 years) to hold me over till i get my Computer Engeneering degree.

    Congratulations on the new Laptop!

    I actually have one from 2005, but I wouldn't want to upgrade/get a new one because alot of small programs I have may not be compatible with Vista. :eek:

    I still don't have my laptop, which is STILL having repair issues after two months back and forth to the idiots called Cyber-Test, Wal-Mart's warranty company. I'll never shop at Wal-Mart again.

    But, my Mom got a new laptop on Monday. A new Acer 5570z laptop. Windows Vista Premium, 120GB Hard Drive, 1GB RAM (plan to upgrade to 2GB) and the Best Buy 2 year warranty. Nice, but handles Vista about average.

    I just want MY laptop back! I'm tired of borrowing someone else's.

    I saw that add in the Sunday papers, but my Mom decided on the Acer from Best Buy because of the warranty. She even got the purposeful coverage such as for drops or other incidents. If there are any mechanical issues, it is just a short drive for her to go to Best Buy.

    BUT, depending on how my laptop repairs go and how my employment and job search goes I might get me a laptop with Vista Premium, decent processor, and a system that can handle up to 4GB of RAM with 1GB to 2GB initially. My Mom's Acer has the 1GB but can only handle 2GB. I plan on upgrading that for her as soon as I can.
