    Default computer favorites

    My Dell laptop died. Its over. Done. I am currently using a Kindle Fire but I hate the touch screen.(I have already had to correct thos 4 times) I would love to hear suggestions for laptops or tablets that type easier than Kindle. My Dell only lasted three gears and the battery went bad after two. There has to be a better option.

    I have loved my Toshiba Satellite. Had it 4-5 years, it's still very fast, and no problems what so ever. Just get norton and you're set.

    I'm sure someone will claim you should get a mac book. But Toshiba is a great option if you don't go mac.

    I have had my Toshiba Satellite for 7 years. It is finally starting to go bad. I am going to have to try and pull all my saved info off of it. My wife's Toshiba lasted 5 years. We just bought a new Toshiba at Christmas.

    I'll be the one to suggest the MacBook. Had a 17-incher for seven years, now I have a 13-incher. I'm just going to let that statement stand on it's own.

    Anyway, I'd also highly recommend the iPad, although the iPad is almost strictly for consuming media, where the MacBook can be used to either consume or create.

    A friend of mine said his iPad does not have that flash player thing. Does that mean I wpuldn't be able to watch videos or the olympic replays? I assume the toshiba has that because its IBM compatible. Is that the deal?

    For a tablet/reader I like the iPad.

    For a laptop, the Macbook Air (11 inch) is a great product and isn't much larger than an iPad and just as portable and more capable, but it is double the price to start.

    I don't need a laptop so I use the iPad almost exclusively. I do moderate text editing and publishing from it and use it for reading, surfing, emailing, and for tech sheets. It'ss all I need.

    Quinn, the native iPad does not support Flash. So any website requiring Flash to play video or games will not display on an iPad. There are ways around this but it's not too practical. In only my opinion, websites that aren't upgrading to HTML5 and deemphasizing Flash are missing the boat. I rarely, in my user habits, run into a site that is only Flash, but it does happen occasionally, but I don't miss navigating away from them. I'm not following the Olympics much, but I downloaded the NBC Olympic app and watched the replay of the USA women soccer team playing Canada.

    I have an ipad, youre right about the flash issues. Ipad is a nice compliment to a laptop, but NOT a replacement

    Have a Dell Inspiron, picked it up at Fry's Electronics at one of their Saturday One Day Specials for less then $320.00, loaded up with Norton Anti-Virus and have used it all over the world for the last 2 years with absolutely no problems. If it ever goes down, just throw it away and buy another one for around the same price.

    Side note: A buddy of mine bought a $1500.00 Mac Notebook about a year ago, it's been in the shop twice.
