I always had Dell lap tops, I want to try something else. The one I have is almost dead and I had it for 4 years. Can someone suggest something cheap, I would love to hear from you. Thank you in advance for your time.

I think HP laptops are the best .Since they are the world leaders on the manufacturing of laptops , it is better to buy from them .

I have a dell laptop and luckily, I have had nothing but luck with dell and their company. Everytime I call for assistance, if something is wrong, they either send a technician to fix the part or send me a new laptop. (I do have a warranty) You say you want to try something different than dell so I have to suggest trying something like APPLE. Apple always seems to have good programs as well as service plans. Maybe you want to even try the new IPAD.

I have an Acer laptop, and it's pretty good, I believe. :) And it wasn't all that expensive either. I also really like the design of my laptop.

I have a Dell laptop and I have been using it for three years now. It wouldn't cost a huge amount of money to buy another Dell laptop. I would like to have a faster processor than an Intel Celeron M. I have heard that E Machines make super laptops that are economical to purchase. Lately I have seen some great deals on Acer laptops. They have 3GB or 4GB memory and a 320 GB or 500 GB hard drive. I think that an Itel core i3 processor comes in at a reasonable price. If not a core 2 duo might be good enough. Good luck choosing your new laptop.

I also thinking about buying a new laptop since the one that I use now has already 5 years old...so we're in the same condition...but in buying new laptop...I want to give you a little advise..don't ask for something cheap...that's the second thing..but first..what you need to look for is the spec..it is ok for the laptop to be expensive...as long as we can use it for a long term...let me give you an example..Dell Alienware...in term of price,yes,it is expensive..but in term of spec and technology used..the Alienware spec n technology is beyond a normal laptop have today..so..your laptop will become among the latest laptop used even after 2 years..with that..you don't have to think about buying another laptop for about maybe another 10 years... (I assume that there's no radical changes in technology development)

The laptop computer has become a standard piece of equipment for many consumers. This isn't to say that the desktop computer is no longer used, but people do enjoy the portability of the laptop and the ability to carry information, work, and entertainment on the road. When buying a laptop, you should do your best to be honest about what will you be doing with that laptop. Consumers like "bells and whistles" and it can be tempting to buy a computer that has the "potential" to do other things. However, computers are still expensive and if people are only going to be doing some basic functions, they should be willing to buy an entry-level machine. You can get a solid laptop for a reasonable amount of money if you are willing to shop around. If in doubt, you should talk to friends and read reviews before making a final decision.
