    Looking at new Laptops


    I am looking at getting a new Laptop for myself and giving my fiancée (Stephanie) my other Laptop. The Laptop that I am giving her is a Toshiba. The Toshiba is Windows 10 compatible and has been great. It just doesn't have a DVD/RW drive and that's what I need. What manufacturers do y'all recommend? I don't want another Acer. In my opinion, Toshiba, HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Samsung are the best. HP and Dell are at the top of my list. Which manufacturer do y'all recommend? Also, where do y'all normally get your computers at? I live in the United States. Also, I am looking at spending $100 to $200 for one. It doesn't have to be touch screen. Just as long as it has a number keypad and a 15.6" screen or bigger is fine with me.

    ASUS, refurbished from E-Bay or Amazon, although my daughter's Asus came from the Navy Exchange.

    Thanks for the information. Why do you recommend ASUS? I have heard they are good though.

    I use HP for personal use and work and love them. I'm really not sure what you're expecting to get for $100-200 though---unless you're looking for a bare bones netbook with a slow processor, and next to no onboard memory. A new laptop with decent specs is going to cost a bit more than that. Did you mean thousand?

    Because my daughter and I both love our Asus laptops. My daughter's did have a problem, though. When the battery would get down to below 10% the screen would flicker. I sent it back to them under warranty and within 1 week had it back, repaired, with the hard drive in the exact same state I sent it in. Normally manufacturers like to re-image the hard drive back to factory fresh state, but Asus did not.

    I have found several HP laptops that were of good quality on Facebook's marketplace for $150. I don't mind buying used as my Toshiba was used and it has been an excellent computer. I upgraded the RAM on it to 8GB and it does well in Adobe Lr. I only gave $150 for my Toshiba. So I don't think you have to buy a computer that is bare bones to be cheap.

    I thought you were looking for a new laptop as stated

    I'm glad you have had good luck with used. Personally, I don't trust people enough to buy used but that's my problem.

    Well, I apologize for sounding rude. But, no it doesn't have to be new. Just as long as it has Windows 10 and is in decent shape with a number keypad and a 15.6" or larger screen.

    If it needs the RAM upgraded, I will be glad to do so as I did it with my Toshiba.
