Check out Consumer’s Guide for top 10 laptops. In my opinion a computer is a computer. It depends on what options or sales manufacturer is offering. I would recommend Dell products because of the in home service. I have worked on laptops for customers in RV’s, homes, tailgates of pick-up trucks, traveled by boat for ½ hr to customer’s home on island, etc. Will the laptop manufacture provide home service or do you have to send it back for repair? All my kids have Dell laptops and so do I.

Every time i open my lap top screen to a certain degree it turns red. i have to keep the lap top almost closed to get the correct color right


This is unfortunate, as that points at a display problem which in my experience with these laptops comes with very little chance of repair.
In my opinion it is caused by overheating of graphics processor due to the portege's relative small build. The fix would require dissasembly of entire laptop and re-soldering of graphics processor. This takes a technician using a microscope equipped station, and is not cheaper than some new laptop models available today. The non-expensive fix but risky, would be to disassemble board and attempt to re-flow graphics processor connections by heating with heat gun. When I attempted this I lost entire display. My recomendation is to use external monitor if possible, which may prove futile since issue with graphics will likely be visible on that too. good luck
The procedure involves

without wifi your going to need some sort of internet access to download anything, check the sides for an Ethernet port, plug it in, do your business.
after you have it downloaded however, you dont need any internet at all to actually watch a movie. unless its streaming =)

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

Mini Laptop Recomendations


just looking thru the question here and i seen your's.
what i reccomend for any user is to ask what are you using it for? bussiness/ personal/ gaming/ ripping dvd's, whatever it can impact on your choice. however i would,nt reccomend buying the latest and greatest, but rather something that is being used by other people, something that has a excellent support and quite common, simply because it will be easier and a little cheaper to repair, upgrade, etc. rather than a custom built jobby if you know what i mean. nearly all lappy's have built in wifi/bluetooth/ethernet and celluar devices so connection isn't a issue. graphics and cpu power come first then memory then look for blu-ray/ dvd cappabilities for the future. you cpu and memory will last for years but blu-ray/dvd/cd media of the like change fast.

probaly rabbled on a bit but i hope at least i have put food on the table for thought.

Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
  • If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
  • If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
  • You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.
