Re: New laptop or upgrade HDD in existing one?
I find that no matter where you go someone will always say particular brands suck whether it be acer, hp, toshiba etc. My laptop comes from a particularly problematic line, the dv 6000 series which are infamous for wifi card failures, gpu failures and motherboard failures. However I have not experienced any of these things with mine.
Some of my friends are telling me to get a compaq but the one they are saying I should get is a 250$ compaq from walmart. reason: "Because it is cheap and you get everything you get on higher end laptops" Referring to all the bloatware like norton internet security. I don't want that though
Someone said earlier you could get an i5 laptop for 500$ where is that? All I see for under 500$ are ones with the amd APUs which I am skeptical about
Anyway I am looking to maybe replace my laptop around christmas time since I just built a new desktop rig in july and am a little strapped for cash and also I can live with this laptop for a while longer but the lack of ample HDD space is starting to be a pain
