Nice lil lapper there.  Should serve you well for a few years.  The NONE in the 2nd g-card and hdd slots means you have room for these upgrades in the future correct?

Cool, although tablets have gotten so good the last few years, I'm not sure why anyone still needs a lappie.

I know right? why use a laptop when you can just use a HUGE phone?

I'm on wireless, but I'm contimplating on switching my internet to dialup. This overpriced verizon internet is more than I need or want. I don't facebook, I don't yack on the phone all day. I suppose I do youtube a lot, but I don't need anything high speed really.

Used a desktop for 10 years.Gave up waiting for an Amiga resurection after a 10 year mourning. Got a Asus laptop with AMD A-6 apu. Have DSL on a land line. leery of broadcating on wireless actually parinoid enough to think about making my apartment a faraday cage.Have a lot of parts around for a stillborn desktop project.Ended up taking drives and putting them into a case,found a neat little SATA to USB 3.0 header at Addonics and made a big external drive with 4 hard drives and several DVD,BlueRay,CD drives.
I like this A6 apu,has a pretty decent GPU  runs 2 moniters and a TV for movies. Don't watch TV unless it is the odd program I can find on P2P

Amiga is actually still around, sort of, and appears to be run from the back of a warehouse.  They're sort of the technology equivalent of a civil war reenactment.

My Toshiba satellite is on it's last legs after 6 or 7 years of nonstop use. It takes a lot for me to get it to boot up anymore, so I just leave it on. Anyway, I'm in the market for a new laptop. Any suggestions?
