Hey everyone, I was interested in possibly getting a laptop.
I am currently using a 08 HP desktop, with Windows 7, and a graphics card. Don't know the specs, it was only $50 I think.
I use the computer mostly for entering sweepstakes, and checking email. For games, I usually use consoles. I copied these questions from another thread to give an idea of what I am looking for.
Laptop or Desktop? I have never had a laptop before, and would like to keep my pc in its current place so it can still be used. This way I have two computers. If I get another pc I won't have a place to put the current one.
My budget for the new computer is: No more than $800
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? I use the computer mostly to enter sweepstakes, and check email. Sometimes for games.
What software do you intend on using on the computer? No particular software, just a malware/anti virus program.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? I play games on it sometimes, but mostly on console. I would like to have the option to play a game though, if I find one that I want to get.
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? I have a lot of tabs open at the same time, and pages open at the same time.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Not much music, but I do like to save photos.
Will you be overclocking? Not sure what this is. Have to google.
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? I'm in Tx.
How many monitors are you planning to use? Just one monitor.
Do you need peripherals? OS? Not sure what this is.
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? The pc I'm using lags when trying to run particular websites, and the mouse also lags. It makes it difficult to use.
