    I Love It !

    I was a lil weary of getting a laptop, and avoided it for a good while. I loved my desktop, and was comfortable with it. I will admit, it took me awhile to get use to navigating on the laptop, but once I figured that out, I was sold ! I now love my laptop so much that the...

    I'm gonna destroy it though.

    I just got the flashing question mark file icon. Meaning that something is corrupted in my computer. I hate technology right now. I ******* hate it!

    MY experience here is

    that I would always crash, virus, or outright KILL my hard-disks....within a few months of getting a laptop ( new ), I NEVER had a good experience with windows ( not a lasting one )

    My Latop

    i had a laptop but when it broke i then had the option to either get another laptop or a desk top computer, the choice for me was simple because with a laptop its more portable and you can easily take it places and you dont need to have it plugged in constantly to use it.

    I got an Asus laptop yesterday,

    (14th March) and it's already showing the blue restart screen with a sad face saying "sorry, something went wrong". I don't know what to do and I can't find anything online that tells you how to stop it. Anyone know what to do?

    I'm Typing This From My Laptop.

    But it appears I need a new one. This one's screen flickers (even though I had it fixed four months ago) and it now overheats if it's not plugged into my cooling table. It's lived a long life but it's a pain. I know nothing about anything when it comes to buying a laptop.
