buying gf laptop

by flettl2 / March 10, 2008 4:45 AM PDT

At the end of August I bought the 12inch dell XPS M1210 with intel core 2 duo, T5600 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, 120GB hard drive, Vista Home Premium. I love this baby. The only downside is no back lit keyboard. Back then after tax I paid $1600CAD. Now I'm looking for a laptop for my gf, looking to purchase in April. This laptop should have roughly the same specs as mine, under 15inches, built-in webcam, and she only wants to pay a grand CAD. I was looking at the dell XPS 1330 and that comes to like $1350CAD after tax, think this will drop to a grand come april? There should be some laptop out there that has the same specs as mine which I can get for a grand 8 months after I purchased mine right?

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?
