HP Laptop deal?

by wueurope / July 27, 2007 2:01 AM PDT

Got an HP taptop recently for $774 tax included. Anyone can help me out on whether it's a good deal or not.
Keep in mind that, I don't need top of the line components as I'll only be using it for itunes, IE, and interenet.
If I was to buy the same laptop at the end of the year, how much cheaper would the be? Thanks for the advice.

if it was me I prefer Intel. I know AMD is going to release a new mobile processor which will probably decrease the price of that system but I don't know if it will be before 2008.

magazine and AMD's new notebook processor codenamed Griffin will not be out until mid 2008 so the price for that model should be pretty stable.

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?
