I want a laptop cause my dad never gets off the Computer to play a game on the internet. the laptop has to be a descent Computer With basic functions like wifi and hd screen but dosnt need to be fancy. i dont care if it is balk. i would rather have a cd drive other than a netbook. thank you
You can’t get much for $300, other than a netbook. You may be able to get a refurbished from Tigerdirect.com.
When you consider that with a USB port, you can add ALL the external portable storage you want, and then you can KEEP on adding all the external portable storage you want… The size of your internal laptop hard drive becomes irrelevant. Windows Vista and Windows 7 take up around 5 gb. XP takes up less than that. You add in the software you need, and you might be looking at 40 to 60gb.
Now. You want to put your music somewhere? Why would you put it on the hard drive inside the computer? What is going to happen when the OS gets fragged with Malware and Spyware and a Virus or three, and you have to reinstall your OS, and you LOSE ALL THAT MUSIC? Ok, it might be movies. It might be games. However, regardless of what it might be, the fact of the matter is that every professional in the business of computers will agree that when it comes to media of any kind, it is better to put it on a separate drive, and preferably a portable one. This way, if for any reason whatsoever, you have to reinstall Windows, you do not have to touch your media in any way.
So, why not reconsider the ONLY specification you are asking about here? Whether or not your new potential laptop has a 320gb hard drive, or a 250gb hard drive, or a 160gb hard drive is not all that important. How smart you are about where you put the things you want to save, is FAR more important.
And… You are far more likely to find something with a 40gb hard drive, for the money you want to spend. Just want to get you ready for that. Want to see?
end of line
