Used my wife's Insperion the other night for a PowerPoint and DVD presentation and it overheated and shut off. This makes the 4th problem in a year (modem, keyboard glitch, overheating, powercord) and I am tired of calling India support to no avail.
I am in the market for a dependable computer with respectable support for my small non-profit business. Will be presenting powerpoints and playing DVD's in a public setting so to say the least performance is prefered to an embarising situation.
I also do desktop publishing and other office type stuff.
I need this baby to last 3-5 yrs on the tech curve before it becomes a paperweight.
I am looking at IBM and Toshiba as my two choice companies. I want to talk to an american if possible for tech support.
I assume the following to be adiquite specs:
$2,000 to maybe $2,500 price range
Centrino M or maybe new chip (1.8 to ?)
768 -1 GIG?
64 or 128 video memory Radeon 9,600 or 9,700
DVD/RW/R super drive
4 yr warrenty
Toshiba Satalite or thinkpad? I am just tired of Dell support.
