Need help choosing a new laptop!!

by rew182 / November 1, 2005 1:18 AM PST price range is up to $999.
i basically need a laptop for work (just basic ms office stuff...excel, word, etc), for putting music onto an ipod, for watching dvds, for surfing the internet, and for playing games (not the most advanced games, but id like to be able to run some stuff better than solitare).
i need the laptop to be fairly light since it will be coming to and from work. i need a good battery life, and wi-fi included.
i want a sturdy, reliable laptop that will last for a few years at least.
any help would be much appreciated. thanks.

I spec'd out a HP ze2000z series for you at and came up with one that I think would be good for you at $963.00. Check it out. Looks like it would fit your needs well.

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?
