Welcome to CSR Nation
Has anyone purchased a new computer lately? I am in the market and have no idea what kind of laptop to buy! Any suggestions would be most appreciated!!!
Thanks and Happy New Year, Madonna!
I've only had ThinkPads and they're great as far as keyboard and audio. My TP guy, Bob Bogutsky, died, so for my next machine, I might buy one here: http://www.everbatim.net/store
I have configured all my laptops myself so I don't really need the configuration service that they provide, so I guess it'll depend on the price when I'm ready for a new machine.
From my own mistakes:
Buy lightweight, easy to carry. Get a good -sized screen (readback). Get a nice-sized keyboard. Get a brand name, one that has a good reputation. When looking at the "brains", go overboard. It is better to have too much brains than not enough brains. I think there is currently brains in the i3 (i5). (My brains are minimal, but you get the idea).
Processors were i7 three years ago. I am also considering a new computer soon.
Wow, that eVerbatim place is uppidity. Their Thinkpad e540 is almost $1,100. TigerDirect.com is $619.00.That is a pretty big difference in price.
At least go to TigerDirect.com and see what they have.
thank you s much~ I appreciate your help! Happy New Year!
Interesting, Mary Jo. Thanks for that. Hopefully I can wait for W10 for any new machine and then I'll see.
I recently bought two ASUS Zenbooks and absolutely love them. I bought the first one - weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and very light, so I decided to get a second one as a backup. Both laptops I bought on eBay used. They work amazing. Both computers were about 500 used. New they're about 1200. I'm extremely happy with both of them.
Here is a picture of a new one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Zenbook-UX303LN-DB71T-Quad-HD-Display-Touchsc...
thank you for your input. I couldn't find any used ones on eBay. Can you provide the seller? What software do you use?
I use Eclipse. It works beautifully. Let me see if I can find it again on eBay.
There are tons of used ones on eBay. Here are a few links to them:
