They gonna kiss you when they're done?

Use PriceGrabber to get the best price on the best lappy. Here's a link to the notebook page:
http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_a...php/page_id=13

Choose options on the left, then click the "Compare Prices" button on any you want to look at. Input your ZIP code to get the best price with shipping.

PriceGrabber is how I found my daughter lappy.

I don't recommend Sony. I have never used a Sony PC, but you're probably just paying for the name.

With HP, you will get really good components, and a good name behind it for less money.

Nowadays, you can easily walk away with a laptop for less than $1000.

HP desktops have been lemons.

I have had to fix two HP Pavilions circa 2001. They are poor quality, i agree.

But if you see a new HP laptop up close, they are very easy to use, most are Widescreen, and have excellent display quality for the price.


Also recommended is Toshiba, Dell, and Acer.

Toshiba is good as well.

Don't let anybody tell you to buy Norton, or use their free trials of antivirus. They will slow down any system, whether it's $300 or $3000.

Before even touching your PC, install anything other than Norton.
Heck, even McAffee would be better.
