bizzare

I've had two laps for quite some time, a very old hp with only 2 gigs of memory, very slow and a newer gateway with 3, both have vista

+been windows 7 but since I'd be getting 64 bit wanted a lap with more then 4 gigs of memory, none were available yet

so I've been babying these babies, I've had them both for longer then any other piece of hardware

but yesterday, BOTH of them fried, they won't even post basic in out.

bizarre, anyway, went to best buy and bought the cheapest 4 gig unit I could find, cost 450 and it's a gateway

the bummer is they tell me new laps are comming in two weeks, man I bet the 6 gigs are in that new lot

anyway, now I am on seven, seems just like vista I have to say

Well seven would be a lot like vista since after all its built on the same basic code base. That there are improvements in seven that make in most things I've read a better OS then vista.

That said recently bought this laptop though still need to tweak it a bit more
Asus - Laptop / Intel® Core™ i3 Processor / 15.6" Display / 4GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive - Dark Navy - U52F-BBL5

That said enjoy your new laptop
I got this one

Seven is Vista Sp .. :)

You should have gotten a MacBook. I just got my first one and I love it. I doubt I will ever go back to windows again, although I have windows seven installed on my vmware fusion lol...

Then again, I also have ubuntu installed on it as well ...

I have wanted one for a long time, but couldn't justify the cost. Then I finally said screw it and got one. I got the MacBook Pro 13", the base model they had. I also got a student discount, so it was a no brainer. I love it. I wish I would have got one sooner ...

It has 4 gig of ram and a solid state drive. I am going to upgrade the Ram here soon. The owner manual gives great explanations on how to do it..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
