Trying to decide...new desktop or laptop?

by suzyhouston / June 1, 2008 3:48 PM PDT

I'm getting tired of sharing my computer. We would like to get a new one but can't decide on which kind. It doesn't have to be anything special (and hopefully not too expensive!) All we need the 2nd computer for is basic internet surfing, playing online games (like in pogo)etc. Our other computer is set up for everything else. I would appreciate any suggestions, all this looking and trying to decide is about to drive me crazy!

Thanks!

Pogo games run just fine on the 599 buck laptops we picked up in our family. We've had the usual Compaq, Acer, Toshiba and other "names" and all can run Pogo fine. The only time games become a deal breaker or wallet buster is when people want to play 3D games like Crysis.
