I was a loyal Dell customer, and certified tech from 1997-2007 and still attest to the hardware integrity but their outsourced customer support frustrated me one too many times. I switched to Fujitsu because they also have great hardware quality, great value and the laptop came with a full set of CDs, not just a reinstall partition on the hard drive. I also have an IBM (Lenovo) Thinkpad that is solid but the first spilt drink on the keyboard killed it -same with an HP Pavilion laptop I was given to me after a single drink spill -this Fujitsu has a spill-resistant keyboard. The Panasonic Toughbook is just that -tough, but expensive. Don't look at reviews and ads for research -look at help forums like this for customer support issues and the cds that come bundled with the laptop like an operating system cd:) Steve Medley

Tips for buying Aviator Sunglasses for Men. 1. Budget Budget is the most...

Tips for buying Aviator Sunglasses for Men.<br />1. Budget<br />Budget is the most important driving factor before you go out to own your dream pair of sunglasses. How much would you like to shell out for the pocket, plays a vital role in buying a pair of pilot sunglasses. If you are a bit apprehensive about your budget, then trying searching on the internet or some local the departmental store nearby. However, be ready to compromise on the quality of the shades; or rather go in for a well-known brand for the best quality if budget is not a constrain.<br />2. Brand - the Key Factor<br />As mentioned in the above point, if price is not a matter of concern and you are the kind of a person who wants only the best, then brands such as Gucci or Ray Ban is the right choice for you. You can be rest assured that these brands will offer you the best quality of shades. Don't be surprised if the price tag attached to the pair of pilot shades which you desire reads around $200. Although the price tag may look a bit too heavy, at the end of the day it is definitely worth the brand value.<br />3. Opt in for a polarized or non-polarized pair of lenses<br />These Aviator shades come in two different options - with or without polarized lenses. Polarized lenses do a great deal in further reducing the sun's glare, while the shades with non-polarized pair of lens can relatively block lesser amount of glare. However, the polarized lenses are a bit more expensive when compared to the non-polarized lenses.

Yeti vs Hydro Flask: Which is better?

With so many different stainless steel bottles and cups on the market, it is a little difficult to know which is worth buying. Yet is by far one of the most poplar ones on the market, but is it the best? Many people swear by the Yeti brand, but other brands such as the Hydro Flask have also become quite popular.

In order to do an honest comparison on Yeti vs Hydro Flask, it is important to consider what really matters to you when it comes to using a stainless steel cup or bottle. For example, do you like different lid options? Do you like a wider opening? Do you care about the length of the warranty? What are you willing to spend?

These are just a couple of important questions you may want to ask yourself when considering buying one brand or other, but will help you narrow down the best product or brand for you.

Suggest me the best place to buy refrigerators online?

Refrigerators are something that is of utmost importance in all homes and I am sure there is no home without these products as well. I was planning to buy a refrigerator and I preferred visiting the shop, to check out all the details and select the item that I planned to buy. I visited the Lowe's store and was excited upon seeing their new collection of fridges. I also used the Lowes Coupon for my purchase. And this has indeed helped me to do a better shopping as well.

Best headphones to buy?

This is very subjective and anyone you ask will give you a different answer. Price point is important, in other words the more expensive, the better. Stick to name brands and try before you buy, like in Best Buy.

How do i add a ram memory to my labtop,explain please

It depends on what model of laptop you have. Typicly there is a plastic cover that you remove from the bottom of the laptop to expose your ram dimms (spots to add ram). In some cases both spots will allready have ram in them, in this case you will need to buy higher capacity ram like a 2 or 4 gig stick. I like to order my ram from but if you have no idea what you are doing you can take out the ram and take it to a place like best buy and tell them you need higher capacity ram like "this". They will tell you what kind of ram it is and you can either buy it from them, or go home and get it cheaper online.

My laptop is a V3000 I had it since 2006. My Labtop stop working after a year I couldn't understand why but everytime I turn on my labtop it seem to turn on but the screen is black but the lights are on. I...

Since you see the lights but see no screen you need to find out which one went bad 1. LCD or 2. Video chip on motherboard. You can connect an external monitor to it if you see a desktop on the external monitor then you have a bad LCD on the laptop, but if you don't see a desktop then it's the video chip on the motherboard. If it is the ladder then you might be able to find a local shop to replace the motherboard for you. It is sometimes cheaper than buying a new one. But if you take it to bestbuy they will just tell you to junk it and buy a new one from them!!

I would like to know who makes the Insignia TV? Thank you

They are made by " XOCECO" in China.The link is :

XOCECO = Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd.
They also are sold under the name " Prima ". Their link : Insignia is a brand made & sold exclusively by Best Buy Stores. It's like their "in-house" brand. Same as if you bought Meijer brand ice cream... it's their "in-house" brand. A lot of companies throw surplus parts that are sold to budget manufacturers who assemble and distribute the finished products at a low price.

Depending on which model Insignia you have your eye on, the manufacturer could be up 7 different companies. Xoceco Co. distributes them to Best Buy (they're an importer, but not a middle man because they're regulated by Best Buy Inc.)
A majority of the parts are from LG (and they also produce all the ATSC tuners for every HDTV built-in TV on the market and a plethora of other TV's), Philips-- which also has ties with LG-- and Toshiba has a share in creating the TV's as well.

The same goes with brands like Vizio, Olevia and Westinghouse. Although I would choose an Insignia over any of these brands anyway because Insignia is a proprietary Brand name for Best Buy, and Best Buy supports and services all their products. Some of those brands are built from refurbished models that were bought in bulk from service centers, clearance centers, TV repair shops and are also made from surplus parts.

Insignia is a good TV, but I would not recommend using it as a main TV. It'd be perfect for a bedroom or a kid's room.
