Default witch laptop ?

looking to get a used laptop, and im looking at the Dell M90 but im not sure since the video card goes out a lot on what i read

i just want to use it for wireless internet,saving pics,data ect...... if i go with the dell m90 how long do u think the video card will last by doing those things ?

i like the looks of it also

any other laptop u guys recommend ? that will last a few years good with wifi/performance

You want it used? I can not say how long it will run.

You can get a good working refurbished laptop from Dell:

Are you sure that it is not built into the mother board and can be replaced like a desktop GPU? Cause if not you would be buying a unit that you would have to replace the whole mobo for.

So give us what your looking for so we can help you. Just saying a 17" screen doesnt help. What price range? What kind of CPU, Video card, RAM and so on are you hoping to get? Give us information so we can help.
