Default Re: Recommend me a brand of laptop

For my brother, I recently purchased an Acer AS5920 for about $700, and it presents fantastic value. It's Core2Duo processor is excellent for multitasking, and its 8600M is perfect for Windows Vista, and other graphics-intensive applications. Plus, it has 802.11B/G, & N capability, so you can surf faster, granted you have an N connection.

The only thing it didn't have was bluetooth, which I simply bought a very low-profile PCMCIA adapter for, and since it doesn't stick out, it might as well be integrated.

I'd recommend Acer because of the value. They seemed to have improved their quality control dramatically.

You could look at the Dell M1330, or some of the mid-range Sony Vaios with intergrated graphics.

It was the 70's. What did you expect?

didn't see bill gates or other comp makers do it,


Apple announced Steve's removal, along with the first quarterly loss in their history as well as significant layoffs, on Friday, May 31, 1985.

The weak sales were beginning to put pressure on the relationship between Steve Jobs and John Sculley for the very first time.


sucky sales (just like now)

he can';t even manage a buisneess and you expect to buy something good from him?


The Mac OS doesn't try to emulate DX9. It uses OpenGL. Completely separate engines.

no it uses a specified driver to run a xp (dx9) enviorment type dxdiag, see what it does, it shows a sys file that makes it think it has dx9. , how can something SOOO good need its enemys OS to function well enough for people to buy it?

sounds like they suck to me...

Do you guys want to obey his request or have me close his thread? What ever happens, it's up to you. Stay on track or leave the thread.

Oh sorry I usually dont read it all just post off of the first post. I would Def. not get Dell or Apple. Apple runs on a software that many of products dont use. Dell comes with too much crap that makes your computer slow. So acer or asus.

Dell's actually improved on that, so that shouldn't be a big issue.
