    Help with laptop purchase!

    Hi everyone, I’m planning to buy a laptop next week but still haven’t decided which brand or make to go for. I do not want to install very flashy or graphic games and heavy software. I just want the system to have good battery with decent audio support. It would really help me if the system was light weight…I’m a bit heavy myself! I do not want to go around dragging a heavy laptop!

    Processor 100% busy!!

    I use an ASUS laptop with a Celeron M processor and 512 MB RAM, of late the performance has deteriorated , I tried uninstalling & reinstalling the OS , but no change at all. Whenever I check the CPU performance in the task bar, the processor is always 100% busy. It’s a new piece, should I approach the company?

    Hey Boyd, I think a model from Acer would be good for you. Acer laptops are generally thin and light weight. As for the battery, they have launched a model with 12 hour battery backup. I don’t think you would want battery backup more than that. A roommate of mine has an Acer laptop and it provides pretty decent performance. I say you better visit an Acer showroom and decide for yourself.

  4. Charger issues

    My Dell Inspiron laptop is experiencing some serious charger issues, the laptop is just over a year old and I maintain it pretty well, the battery frequently stops chargin while the laptop is on.. I changed the charger once, but again I end up facing the same issue.. wot shall I do? I am tired of talking to customer support..Is there some problem with the battery?

  5. Laptop Upgrade! Which way to go?

    I am sick of my old laptop. It is just not able to keep up with the times. I have already maxed out RAM and other components which I can upgrade and it’s just not working. I want to buy a real performance laptop that can handle even the latest of applications and software. I’ve narrowed the processor range between i5 and i7. I’ve heard i7 consumes a lot of power…People using them please comment so I can make my decision.
