Notebook crapped out, now what...

    So my Compaq Presario just acted like a tv getting bad reception and then went to black. Warranty is expired. Having someone look at it - probably, just a video card issue, had that issue with first notebook.


    If the shit hits the fan and the notebook is toast, what should I get? Basically all I use it for is the web, file stories, itunes and store sound bites from my recorder.

    Get a Mac. Blow up the PC.

    I had a Compaq back in the early 2000s. Piece of shit. After the fourth repair in 2001, I realized I could have bought a new computer. I took a sledgehammer to the bastard.

    I got an iMac.

    Now, I love my MacBook.

    I've been going through this for the past three years with my Dell.

    I really, really want to get a Mac. But I have a Dell credit card, and I might have to go that route.

    I'm a recent Mac convert with a new MacBook. So far, so good.

    So I could buy four Dell laptops for the $1,500 bucks I spent for the MacBook? Will Dell give me a free iPod, too?

    I've never used an iBook, but I do know that the eMac computers that we use at work are pieces of shit. Never crash? what a load of shit. I'm probably restartin three times a day because the fucker crashes. And the keyboard does this really annoying thing where when pressing a key once it will give five or six of that letter, so I'll end up with sentences like this: Thiiiiiiiiis compuuuuuuttteeeeer is aaaaa piiiiece offffff shhhhhiiiiiiittt. doesn't do it all the time, but for some reason has a knack for it on deadline. Takes three times as long to write a story as normal because I'm going back and deleting all the extra letters.
    For these reasons a lone, and the cost, I will never buy a mac. Oh and Compaq lap tops are pieces of shit too, I am the unhappy owner of one myself.

    I spent a little over $1,200 on my MacBook and it has everything I could possibly need -- and a bunch of stuff I'll never use. I can right click all I want when I plug in my mouse, which I use at home and on the road.
