So it’s new computer time, and therefore time to crowdsource opinions. Bought a new computer recently? What do you like? What do you hate? What are the recommended options these days? What did your friend buy and regret massively having/not having? It is going to be a PC laptop** (I’ve currently got a Dell, which has given sterling service for nearly 8 years). It doesn’t need to be a particularly thin or portable laptop, it’s just that I don’t have a permanent computer desk set-up at home – in fact, I want something with a biggish screen.
*It doesn’t have any viruses, malware, etc. It just can’t cope with complex websites any more, and Windows 7 is also proving more demanding than XP.
**Mac advocates, I understand why you like them, but I’m not interested in the substantial extra cost given that I won’t use the extra functions.
