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.
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?
