Asus X59SR

by h2k47 / June 12, 2009 9:07 AM PDT

Hello,

I am looking for a laptop that I will mainly use for surfing and Multimedia. The price limit am looking for is 800$ and the best laptop I have seen around is the Asus X59SR (
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220459 ) which has a dedicated graphics card. Did I make the right choice ? Or should I am aim for another-probably better-brand- notebook since I wont be using this laptop for games anyway. I am afraid that windows Vista won't run quite well if i had an integrated video card which is why I looked for that one.

thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
