Hi, I'm getting ready to throw my Emachine 3507 with XP out the window soon (oh how lovely the crash will sound, ahhhh) and I need some advice. I was in the market for a laptop... I've never even used one and I thought it would be neat, but now I wonder if I should buy one or just get another PC. The only thing different I wanted to do was plug the new computer into our big screen TV downstairs to watch movies, but I can have the PC down there if it needs to be.
I'm thinking the smaller screen on the laptop might be an issue, as I'm not seeing as well as I used to... although I do use a 15 inch monitor anyway. See, I can't make even the most basic decision! Are there any issues or features that are a major change from a PC to a laptop?
Now I've read a little about the differences between Win 7 and 8, I see you have to look around to get a 7 as it's no longer supported. Is there a way to make 8 look and feel more comfortable to the user? I assume there are display settings, right? Is this the major reason why people don't like it? I am particular about my display settings, BTW. But it's better to go with 8 because of the support, right?
Thanks, I'm a mess...
