Well i think it depends on what will you used the laptop or computer for. If you only want to use it for chatting and browsing then you should buy a laptop since it is very portable. But if you need more work than only chatting and browsing like playing games and others hard working process then it is better to buy computer instead. Why computer? Because computer at the same price as a laptop will have more better specs than a laptop. But It is not portable so choose from what you need most.

Hi, i bought a dell inspiron 1545. I love macbook but can't afford it. It's too expensive. I'll be using the laptop to do some graphic design and browse internet. Thanks for the advice.

Well i guess you choose the right laptop for you. It is quite good laptop too and it easier to take to anywhere with you. So it could be better choice then a computer.

Hi, I know that some times you may get good discount on online offered by third party websites but if you still wants to buy online from third party websites then i would like you to inquiry about that product from the main company who has made that product for it's warranty and any other question you have in your mind, or else i would suggest you that you should buy it direct from the company's website for better service. Thanking You.

I think so too. I'd rather collect my money and buy a new one..but maybe it's a good idea for some people.

I don't by cheap Desktops or Laptops because you get what you pay for also I do a lot of processor and graphics intensive things so I need a powerful Desktop and a Powerful Laptop to do what I need it to do. So I avoid cheap computers and generally tell my friends to avoid them if they can because they are cheap for a reason. Like Computers sold in Wal-Mart generally are lacking high quality parts and aren't that well built. Also Cheap Computers aren't built to handle graphic intensive or long hours like the more expensive and better built computers.

Yes, i think it's lack of some features than the expensive one but sometimes expensize laptop doesn't have good quality too, they only stands by the brand to attract buyers. HP is cheap but maybe not good enough. Macbook is too expensive. I'll try Dell because i think it's in between.

During the christmas time and when they have specials going on with electronics i asked my boyfriend for a laptop and he found one i believe around 299.99 and bought me that one and thats pretty cheap now a days for a laptop and the brand name on it is Toshiba and i believe its a good name. It doesnt have a lot of memory but we dont need that since we have an external harddrive to put things on anyways and so the laptop works great and wasnt over priced at all.

That's a good brands with good value. I believe you have made a good choice. You can upgrade the memory later.

My current laptop is cheap but its already more three years old. My first laptop was around $1000, but it only lasted for about 13 months, its an HP Pavilion DV6000 with the infamous nVidia video chip problem. Since then, I promised myself not to buy any HP laptop anymore, unless its around USD100 only. My current unit is an Asus X80Le model.

i bought a cheap second hand laptop in one of the trading sites on the net, a samsung laptop, and the best part of the deal was the personal warranty for six months. on the other hand, just be cautious and try to investigate first on the person who is selling if he is true to his words.

hi, i also want to say that always buy newer rather to go for second hand. Because i think it will keep you out of any type of terms and condition problem set by the companies. Thanking You.

I always make my PC and laptop my self with quality component (yes, i have made 11 pcs and 4 laptops till now). Never buy cheap PC or laptop online, because at last you will end up paying more repairing charges / component replacement charges.
