Hello Let_g,

Everyone will have their preferences, so expect more than a few answers to this. Knowing more about yourself and your habits will help find the perfect machine for you.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is what your main uses are going to be. Try answering some of these questions:
Do you travel a lot, or will just tend to set yourself up in a few odd places?
Do you play a lot of PC games or movies?
Do you tend to beat up what you own, or are you cautious with your stuff?
Do you like a lot of bells and whistles, or do you prefer something straightforward and simple?
Do you have any particular vision problems?

That aside, my most general advice for anyone looking for a laptop is to simply be sure to get one with a graphics card in some form. Look for something that advertises Nvidia or ATI graphics, and avoid other stuff like "Intel graphics media accelerator", which isn't really a card at all. The reason I say that is that I often find that graphics ability is one of the biggest bottlenecks in a laptop that is not really upgradable in the future. If you get a laptop with a solid graphics card, then most of the other features you need or want should fall into place. At $700-900, you're at the perfect price point.

I can get you specific models with answers to the above questions (I'll check back later). Otherwise, I'm personally inclined to recommend either hp or dell machines, though neither are at the quality they were a couple years back.

I also recommend keeping an eye on sites like Dealhack or Dealigg to find good deals or coupons, and get the most bang for your buck.

    In regard to technical problems with the dv series (not just the dv2000,) a very high number of machines have had issues resulting in the motherboard needing a replacement. I used to own a dv9000, and it happened to me. The primary issue, though, was with Nvidia, and it also affected a number of other manufacturers with a certain chipset. Not much could be done about it, and it wasn't hp's fault. Now is just a good time to avoid buying used.

    Just recently, I replaced my dv9000 with a tx2500. While I greatly enjoyed the 17" screen and the full keyboard on the 9000, it was always a bit of a pain to carry around. between the two I would recommend going with the current 2000 series, as you maintain the portability, and you could always buy a bigger screen to keep at home (that's my current plan.) Better yet, go with the 4000 series if you can find a deal or spare a few extra dollars, as it supports the Nivida Geforce 9200M graphics card, and the extra power boost is a definite plus.

    Go with the 9000 series only if you don't want to be bothered with buying a bigger screen, and you rarely plan on moving it around or going to the local coffeehouse with it.

My lcd has 3 black lines, around 10-12 pixels up 3 days ago, and now it affected the pixels around it, in a span of 3 days, it multiplied to around 80 pixels that's just dead. what do i do? i dont want...

The only option in your case is to have the LCD replaced so Istrongly suggest you take it to your repair man. A reasonable price for that type of repair isabout 50 dollars plus the cost of the screen. You may find a price in the rangeof 50 to 100 dollars plus the cost of the screen though. Any more than that and I would find adifferent repair guy! Ebay is the best place to find the cost of your screen,just type in you model number and add the letters "LCD" to the end.

Best laptop in a lowest price

Hi friends,
There are many people who want to buy best performing laptop in a minimum price. Not many in fact everyone. So, my tip is all about this.

1.) First set the maximum price you can afford or set your budget.

2.) Write your minimum demand you must want like processor, RAM, Hard disk, Graphic Card needed or not, screen size etc. That thinks from which you don't want to compromise.For example, if you want at-least Intel i3 processor, with 4 GB RAM, and 2 GB Graphic Card.

3.) open any of the online shopping website like,, etc. These are some of the website I may recommend to you for shopping. On this website open the laptop category and only add the minimum system requirement you need. This step will outlist a number of unwanted product in which you are not interested. And from the remaining shortlist the product which you like.

NOTE: This is the main step which make the difference, choose if you need an OS at all like window or i-OS because choosing an OS will add 5000 to 6000 in total cost of laptop in case of window, and in case of mac-book it will even higher. You can choose some of the LINUX distribution like UBUNTU, whose interface is really good, and choosing them is much money efficient.

4.) The product you shortlist in 3rd step, check their price on different website because its cost may be different on different site. And you will again save an amount.

Be remember to add an extra amount say INR 1500 or $50 in your max. budget because when you are searching on an website its price may be less on any other and also, there are some of the offers which are offering by the shopping website time to time.

Please, tell others if you like if don't tell me. I will try my best to update this one.

This is my first tip hope you will like.

How much cost if i buy from Sri lanka

If you want to find out the cost of this model laptop, then have a look on the Internet and on E-Bay. Then when you go to a shop in Sri Lanka you will know how much it costs on the Internet compared with Sri Lanka prices.
I have no idea the prices of computers in foreign countries, unless I go there and check it out. I am willing to do this for you if you pay for my airfares and accomodation.

Dell 1721

Hi Tom,
The Inspiron 1720 &1721 series was released more than a year ago and is no longer available new, only refurbished. The comparbable machines currently on the market is the Inspiron 1525 & 1526 series. The 1525 &1526 series are comparable in price and specs, and the specs are a little better as far as graphics and sound cards. The 1730 series is still available, but it has a price of approx $2500. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
