I am not too sure whether I can get laptop advice here but I need one.

I need a new laptop to take care of my business usage. Which one would be better of the two. This Asus Travel mate 2467 or Asus Travel mate 2450 .
What other choices do I have?

Usage: Adobe CS6, Autocad, Flash.

Nice long battery time laptops.

The first has the edge for travel in my view (I won't write a review though.)

You have over a thousand other choices but in this class machine you trade performance for battery time.

Is battery time your goal? And other choices include Ultrabooks.

Indeed, decent battery time is must.

Ultrabooks? No, I dont quite like the concept of use and throw laptops.

Quite nice. Most have long battery times (not to be confused with battery life spans.) They tend to be a slightly better performance and an update from the TimeLine and TimeLineX ideas.

I can only think you haven't used any of them yet.

uses CS6 and hre had a desktop that wouldn't run an upgrade because the processor was to slow. The 2450 has the better processor and the 2467 will probably have better battery life. The reason for the battery life is the SSD and the lower power processor. The 2467 has the 320 gb 5400 rpm HD but it has a 64 GB SSD. The 2450 has the 7200 RPM 500 gb HD. The 2467 will boot faster because of the SSD. These laptops are very similar

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?
