Looking for labtop

by super3go / December 19, 2007 7:05 AM PST

Hey guys, I'm looking for a new labtop. I have browsed sites like ibuypower.com and cyberpower, but just recently heard lots of bad reviews about them. So basically i am looking for 2 things:

1. A good reliable labtop for under $800 and that is pretty good, nothing fancy, but can play most new games like Half-life 2.

2. A good customization site a la ibuypower.com and the likes.

Thanks for hearing me out.

I'm subscribing to this one to see what is found at under 800 and is a gamer's delight.

That would be a laptop I might buy if found and a brand name.

I dont think its that hard to find a worthy labtop for under $800 bucks. Im not saying it should run Crysis, but it should be fast and powerful.

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?
