My desktop just died after a good 10 years. Tried to fix it but I am giving up. Hoping I have most of my old files saved on an external.
I'm going to go for a laptop this time for the portability and I no longer play games so dont need the higher end features. I built the desktop but dont have the time or know how to pick out parts so just want an off the shelf laptop to get me going again asap.
Work - emails, docs etc - nothing too special
Not fussed about brand as long as I get a decent warranty and will put it on 28deg to cover for price drops
15.6" would be nice but I do have a 24" monitor so will be using that most of the time.
Budgeting about $1k
Frustrating this didnt happen prior to June 30!
