Resolved Question

Home Business Laptop

I would like to earn extra income in a work-at-home business, as a retiree. A computer expert recommends Asus and Toshiba. The number of models for Asus alone is mindboggling. What Asus model would be good, and should I wait for Windows Vista 8?

Thank you.

Well concentrate of the category of

laptop needed at first not the brand name. Asus top of the line are gaming machines and you don't need that. I would just shop around at Best Buy, Office Depot, Stables and see that models that are out there. Those models will probably be the easiest to support and have plenty of parts available. I like Newegg and CompUSA but they are limited in the hands on experience. I do live in a City that has 2 CompUSA retail stores. I would look at what features you want such as battery life, weight and screen size and select multiple then compare between the ones you found.

Thank you. I'm kind of limited to Staples, Walmart or Fred Meyer, living in a small coastal area, but I'll try them.

Re: home business laptop

For business use even a basic laptop is fine. No need for things like > 4 GB RAM (even 2 might be find, depending on what business you do), an i7 processor, a separate graphic card, a Blue-Ray reader or a gigantic hard disk.

So concentrate your selection on the screen and the keyboard. They must be pleasant for you to work with.

There's no need at all to wait for Windows 8. If you buy the laptop now you'll have a good Windows 7 machine, and for $14.99 you get a Windows 8 update, just in case you decide to switch later
