Hi, I always recommend people to buy the Gateway brand laptop that costs between 550 and 800$ with specs comparable to the competitors, but with the difference that there is always one or 2 models with a mid/high-end graphics card. Those models are always faster and better than any laptop that cost less than 1000$, and it's been true for the last 2 years at least. I don't even know how they can produce them at such a low cost, but it's definitely the #1 laptop I recommend to everybody! No matter if you play games or not, the graphics card will boost your whole computer and make it a lot faster and more stable.
About graphics card, I recommend paying a visit to this website so you can compare the models, as the model numbers are quite confusing and meaningless:
Good luck to you!

I would go with the first an intel chip is generally more costly and better made then an AMD chip is generally if you want to save money - If it were me I would go with the first.

The second laptop is better. It has .7GHz better speed for the CPU, and has a stand alone graphics card versus the integrated graphics card of the first laptop.

Of course, Sony wants you to use only Sony blank media. :-)

Can you buy new batterys for laptops from yourshop and what price our they please

Yes you can buy new batteries even for old models long since discontinued. I am not sure what you mean by "yourshop" but here are links you can try. You need to research your computer make and model number and possibly the part number of the battering. You can even find batteries on ebay - however I highly recommend using an established vendor with a guarantee selling new batteries.
Hope this information helps FixYa! Please leave me some feedback and let me know

The fan is makeing a load noise

Get a can of compressed air and make sure the fan is clean of gunk/dust. If its the fan built into the power supply, and have been noticing the computer not respoinding as good as used to, the you might need a new power supply.

If the loud noise is coming from a seperate fan, again make sure if it is clean. If it still makes noises, then you might need a new fan.

Need to make computer wireless

First of all, you need to know if you have wireless internet or not. Then find out if its A,B,G,or N wireless and you then now have a choice of different choices.

There is the USB wireless adapter, good for any computer/laptop with usb, (check with operating system though)

The next choice is if you have a laptop, and a PCIMIA slot, you could use this adapter made by microsoft.

Then, for a desktop, if you're safe taking the the case of your desktop computer, you could use this one.

If you don't have a wireless router, you can get one here:

After setting everything up, you need to connect to your wireless internet and input a security code if neccisary.
