    But I Don't Use It Anymore..

    well at least only when my normal computer's not working. It's just slow and old and half of the things don't work anymore.

    Toshiba

    I had a Dell, but it started falling apart. It hadn't worked properly to begin with. This new one functions properly. It isn't slow and the keys aren't falling off. I like it so far. (Waits for malfunctioning)

    It makes a loud noise

    whenever it's leaning ever-so-slightly to the right or left. It's very annoying.

    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 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.

    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.
