if i was a person seeking a pretty big screen with high quality and good performance that is under 6 lbs, i would go with the m140. But if you want a ultra portable laptop that is under 3 lbs with a hecka small screen and 1 of the worst graphics cards available, then get the tx. I know that the inspiron has better battery life.

My friend has a lot of hardware problems with Sony's laptop. And keep in mind that he uses it as a desktop, so, no kerry out/in at all.

sony stuffs their laptops with the most bootleg hard drives ever. the hard drives are from manufacturers other than hitachi and seagate and they run super sluggish. yet, sony puts the most beautiful screens in their systems on the market. i would go with the dell.

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?
