As I mentioned in yesterday's post I am considering buying a laptop, I can't afford to spend much on this especially after spending so much on a new bed. Obviously I will need to be able to blog on it and as you are aware I like to use pictures both my own and ones I find on the net. I also like to listen to my music. Sometimes I need to create word documents and excell spreadsheets. I shall need to use it on a wireless connection as I am most likely to use it in my bedroom more than anywhere else.
I have looked at laptops online, some at places like PC world, some at Novatech which is a local company that makes computers and equipment. I have even looked at Tesco online. Dell and a number of other sites. There are quite a few refurbished laptops on sale on some sites but would a refurbished laptop be reliable ? I don't want to spend more than I need to buying a laptop but I don't want to get a cheap one that I then end up spending loads on because it isn't reliable. I have worked out that I need at least 516MB but 1GB would be good 60GB to 120GB hard drive, DVD and wireless together with either windows XP or Vista
but my problem is where to get it for and how much to pay for it. which processor is best for my needs......and I am not thinking about my womanly needs this time.
I keep coming back to the Fujitsu Siemens so it is looking like it will be one of those. There is one at £299 but another for £379 but 2x as much memory.
I also need help on how to fix a problem with my desk top it has decided that it nolonger recognises the wireless adaptor. It isn't the adaptor that is faulty as I ahve tried two and the same happens. It isn't the usb port as it is the same with all them, every now and then it does recognise it for a few seconds then we lose it again. It appears to be a problem with the driver, which I have rolled back . I have uninstalled and reinstalled I ahve also tried system restore. But nothing seems to work so we are back to one computer between us again!!
