Last 2 computers Acer Aspire.laptop 15"..loved them.. Now may be going belly up. Getting 2" of white across bottom when I open it.
Bought an HP model 15AC132DS. Big mistake...slowest ever. Have to beat touch pad with a hammer to have it do anything, 2 or 3 times to open an email, pad is so slick cursor never seems to activate.
Have a Dell 17" made in 2013....empty and probably used 15 times...friends husband passed away. It's 8.1 Windows. Pulled it out last night and pad and cursor like getting in a Cadillac after the HP...
I've just purchased Microsoft Office Pro and Quickbooks as I have business from home and spend lots of hours on computer each day. Do fair amount of research on internet. Don't need anything for fast gaming.
Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? Being illiterate in this area it occurred that maybe the guts of the Dell being 4 years old...could be problems even though computer not used.
Comments/suggestions please. I'm out of my league. I'm going to look into the Acer but if Dell upgrade makes sense I will attempt that.
Thanks in advance for advice/comments/pitfalls etc. Also what are a few good choices for basic, FAST, hardworking laptop?
