    i always saw lenovo as a very pricey brand but they're having a sale right now and i'm really tempted to get one. i really wanna wait until companies start offering a free windows 7 upgrade though. apparently after june 26, best buy will offer it.

      There are a number of Quad core notebooks out there in the market. They're all just pretty massive. I mean there's some core Core I7 notebooks aswell, but those will cost a pretty penny.

      And as for the Lenovo Thinkpads, I love the look of it. Simple and effective.

        Also, Option B is I get my ****** HP Laptop fixed again, and just use it for class, and then buy a desktop computer, which I hear are far better then laptops.

          What is wrong with the laptop?? how much would it cost??

          depending, I would go with Option B. For sure. Desktops are supreme.


          Silverback....still the best.

              I use a Lenovo Thinkpad. My brother owns two. They are excellent in my mind. They are durable, simple and do the job. I've seen a lot my friends who have their monitor look as it will disconnect because it is so flimsy. The T42 I have is Solid as a ROCK.

                How can you suggest a quad core laptop to a guy who just uses his computer for internet, papers, and watching movies?

                You have alot of very cheap options.

                I dont know much about these things but you can purchase Netbooks. Basically computers that run for the web and simple word processing things. They range from 200 bucks to 1000 bucks

                http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCateg...&name=Netbooks

                Just a note these thinks are swank...they have small screens...only like 9 inches....but they are cheap as all get out....if thats all your looking for.

                  i'm about to get a lenovo ideapad. the specs just seem better.. more RAM and hard drive space.

                  which is better?..

                  1. 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
                  4GB RAM
                  320 GB Hard Drive
                  $700

                  2. 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
                  3GB RAM

                    I'd say option 1 is the best way to go. The little speed increase the CPU won't be that noticeable, while 4GB of ram has pretty much become standard the past year. Are you looking at the U330, because I've been eying that one aswell.

                        1. is the y550 and 2. is the y530

                        portability isn't a big issue for me so i wanted a big screen. the u series looks great too.

                            I dislike HP/Compaq due to the customer service. If you do buy, I seriously hope you never have to call them. Their support system is horrid, if you ever have to send them your computer expect it do be ~2-3 weeks for repair time. Plus they "tattoo" some parts so if you replace it you will get a "CODE PURPLE" which the only way to fix it so send it to HP/Compaq so they can retattoo or to install a new OS. This "tattoo" basically links the OS with the original parts of the computer [motherboard mainly] and if the "tattoo" isn't the same then the OS won't boot. You'll be at CODE PURPLE!

                            If you do decide to go that route, it would be best to buy all the necessary parts and ensemble yourself. It's not hard at all, and it's very basic, connect this with this, ground yourself [touch metal before touching the part]. Building a computer is very easy. By building it yourself you should be able to a) get a better PC for the money or b) save money for a PC with the same specs a name brand carrier would be offering. Plus many parts come with lifetime warranties, my GPU and RAM both did. If you think you can build it I can look over TigerDirect for parts and try to make a few recommendations.

                            2. 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
                            3GB RAM

                            $720
                            Option 1 is better spec wise. You can easily overclock your processor to gain the .13 GHZ that option 2 has without any harm to the processor at all, you have another GB of memory and you save $20.

                              Newegg is great in the states, but APS is from Terrence and Phillip land. TigerDirect.ca is going to be his best choice.

                                I might actually buy that laptop falconer said, the Lenovo ideapad. I really like it. It isnt as clunky as the regular Lenovos, but still has the reliability and also they have great customer service.

                                And yes, HP has absolutely atrocious customer service.
