What's the best computer manufacturer?
details
A few years ago you guys had this great story about long term warranties for computer makers, and as a computer technician I've used it to make my case as to which manufacturer my clients should go with. It has been a few years and I'm sure things have changed a little. It would be great to see an update on these statistics.

Where can I buy a cheap battery for my Toshiba?
details
Hello,
Where can I buy a cheap battery for my Toshiba? I have a laptop Toshiba PA3634U-1BRS akku that has already said goodbye to me. A friend told me to take the opportunity to buy a battery that is better. Could I use a better one? ? Could you suggest any site that is legit? I'm not an expert, so I need your help. I've seen some with 8 or 12 cells, with more power, etc ... What does this mean? ? Are they better? ? Can I trust online store? Such as:...

What is the best tablet to use for PowerPoint presentations?
details
[I would prefer an Android-based tablet since I'm already familiar with that platform.]

By "best tablet" I mean, which is the most reliable and intuitive device for running PowerPoint? What about connecting the tablet to a projector? Do they all have mini HDMI? Of course I wouldn't be designing the presentations on the tablet, simply running them.

Thoughts? Any help is appreciated!

Worth upgrading RAM on 4 year old laptop?
details
I have a 4 year old Toshiba Satellite A135 that runs Vista. It's a little beat up, but otherwise works fine. The processor is Intel Core 2 Duo 1.73 GHz, 110GB HD, and I upgraded the RAM from 1GB to 2 right away when I bought it from Bestbuy in 2007. The battery life sucks and it's heavy, but these things don't bother me anymore. I graduated college in 2008 and since have used it 95% of the time as a desktop, especially since getting my iPhone. So here's the question: Would upgrading the RAM to... Read more →

Need Advice for Next Ultraportable
details
Looking for a new laptop for grad school (economics) and it seems like I just can't find the right one. The MBA looks and feels amazing, but I like to game on the go between study sessions (mainly Magic Online which doesn't have a Mac client) and I'm worried about proper spreadsheet support+any statistical package my professors decide to use. Considering I'm going to be doing a bunch of writing, Lenovo (X1 or E420s) is a real possibility, but I like studying and doing work at coffee shops, not... Read more →

I am looking at the G560-0679-AJU and wondering if it is worth it, I don't want to spend much more than this and it seems alright.

I am looking at this Lenovo laptop: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/902238/Lenov... and wondering if it is worth it, I don't want to spend much more than this and it seems alright. Just wondering what people think if it is a good laptop. I was looking at this or a used macbook around the same price range but I would rather buy a new computer and I don't want to get another HP or Compaq, they seem to breakdown on me too quickly. I found this one by Toshiba:... Read more →

Windows 7 Upgraded No Problems
details
Got an advanced copy of Windows 7 Ultimate so I upgraded the laptop. Just wanted to report even though it took a long time (watch a show, play a game) the transition went smoothly. Only had to choose one option during the whole process. Runs a bit peppier now. Nothing dramatic but it is noticeable.

Power Connector issues
details
My M35 finally died when I couldn't get it to keep a charge. The power connector became loose, and even though I bought a new connector and tried to solder it myself, I never got it to work properly. I found this was a common issue with the M35 from various forums that helped me troubleshoot the issue. Here are the instructions if you want to try this out for yourself. http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/07/16/s...
