Which laptop is better for the same configuration

by kd101 / January 16, 2007 5:40 AM PST

I have been looking for a laptop for a while now and narrowed my choice to Dell E1505 and a HP DV6000t

I bought a 1505 because it had better warranty (at home service), lower price for same features what is the mood out there do people like dell E1505 or the HPDV6000 t

Let me know your choice based on the following criteria

* Reliability and Durability (Which will last longer)
* Price (Get more with lower price or at lower price)
* Build Quality
* Performance

Same parts inside.

So the one you treat well will last longer. The same make of CPUs inside, the same hard disks and so on make any guess at longevity a guess. While I get 4 years out of a laptop they are never dropped, sat on, loaned out, etc.

A laptop is like a desktop ...

It will last the same time. It can last 10 years if you want ( you'll change the battery, of course ). If you had RAM over years and a larger hard-drive, it will last even longer because the Core Duo or the Core 2 Duo is not about to But the components will stay competitive about 3 to 4 years. After, it will become like my old Pentium III 800 ... A secondary computer.

A laptop that is cleaned from dust regularly ( like a desktop ) will last as long as a desktop.

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?
