Cheap laptop

Recommended Posts

What is the cheapest laptop I can get that will run Runescape HD and Microsoft Office. I just need one with a internet wireless card and good graphics card.

Country and max price?

 

And what do you mean by a good video card, seperate or an intergrated that's more powerfull than cheaper intergrated (phrased myself weird there)?


J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies

Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie

Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens

Je suis juste un cas désespérant

Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer

Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

Save your money for something worth while? For around $800 you can get a decent laptop.

Decent? The config may be decent, but its vulnerability to problems, uh, makes it BAD.

 

 

 

I don't recommend you buy a cheap laptop, since they are very vulnerable to problems --- a hardware problem happening outside warranty period(e.g. motherboard failure due to bad capacitors) kills your system instantly, forcing you to buy a new one. It is almost impossible to replace the motherboard of a notebook.

 

 

 

Even great brands, like Acer or HP, are prone to failures as well! That's why they only give you 1 year warranty period! :shame: They are more willing to give you longer warranty period for desktops.

 

 

 

My Fujitsu notebook has 3 year warranty =D> and is made in Japan not China ;) Unfortunately that Fujitsu notebooks available in Europe & USA are made in China, and they only got a year warranty. The product is different in Hong Kong at my side

 

 

 

I believe IBM (now owned by Leveno) also offer 3 year warranty. Their notebook is also very robust. But the price is a bit higher.

 

 

 

Consider lengthening the warranty period. Also pay attention to the terms of service.

 

 

 

If I were you, I would either pay more to buy a notebook with longer warranty period, even if it mean a higher price, or a desktop with similar price.

By the way, your requirement is very low. Every notebook available today can satisfy them.
