Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

What kind of computer do you have? Do you like it?
I have a hp desktop that has seen better days. It has crashed 3 times in the last few months and today I can't get it to start up. I'm on a REALLY old laptop right now and the mouse doesn't work great and it WILL NOT hold power. It HAS to be plugged into the wall and if it comes out it will turn off immediately.

SO, I'm planning on buying a new one SOON!

Pin It!

My husband bought me an HP laptop for Christmas and I love it. I never thought I'd want/need a laptop, but I have to admit that it's the best thing ever. It's small enough to not be bulky but has a full 17" screen. Love it! It's the G60-530US model.

Do me a favor please--all of my readers lost my feed this weekend when I switched to Word Press. Can you visit my site at www.lifeasaceo.com and re-subscribe to my feed or re-follow me through google? THANKS :)

I can't wait to see everyone else's responses.

I am shopping for a new laptop as well because this one has 1 foot in the grave.

I found a super lightweight Toshiba at Best Buy I love but at $599 I think it is overpriced. I love that it is super lightweight and has a long battery life.

Leaning towards a Dell. Probably Studio 15. With Mary Kay I get a 12% discount off the lowest advertised price so it was going to be around $500 and had more memory and better processor.

If you want to take it around the house with you I wouldn't recoomend a 17". Our current laptop is a 17" and I find it bigger and heavier than I would prefer to sit on the couch with or blog from bed with.

Good luck!

I'm a Dell freak. I have a desk top and laptop (I work online) and everyone in my household has a Dell.

I have a desktop PC that Mat built for me {easy to tailor to my needs and more cost effective} and an HP Mini laptop for internet browsing when I don't want to get out of bed ;)

I'm a graphic designer so I have a Mac desktop and a Mac laptop that I ADORE! I'm very pro-mac.

But my hubby has a Dell XPS and my sis has a new Dell laptop and they love them. And I admit, my sister's Dell laptop is pretty badass.

I recommend Dell over HP.

GOOD LUCK!

We have had two Dell laptops in the last 7 years and I love them! We have very few problems and the first one lasted almost 6 years before we needed a newer one...and it still works! I think our new one is a Dell Studio.

Auntie E said...

Here's my Aloha Friday link for you

We have all Dells at our house. We're pretty pleased.

I would love to try out a mac, but the $$$$ deters me.

Jamie said...

We have a Dell Inspiron that only works when it is not plugged in. You have to charge it when it is off but will only last about 4 hours without the cord...not cool!

Jenna said...

A few months ago I bought my brother's MacBook Air from him and love it! I had an older Dell laptop before that, that was falling apart slowly.

Preggo said...

Your laptop sounds like mine - its only 5 years old (a Gateway), but the mouse doesn't work, the power cord won't charge, the sound is out and last week all three USB ports went ka-putt, so there went using my plug-in mouse!

I'm in serious need of a new one and am considering a Netbook. . . . . but I really like watching movies and fitness workouts when I travel!

Our desktop is a HP and you know why I love it? Because we finally ditched our 30 pound monitor and got a flat screen. Soooooo worth it!

Dee said...

LOL! My laptop is a gateway too!

Twin-Spiration said...

I have a Gateway laptop...I love it! The only issue for me is that I travel often for my business and buying this computer I got the 17 inch screen and it's pretty heavy.

I have a Toshiba Sattellite laptop I love it! I have some awards for you http://www.kiddiescornerdeals.com/2010/02/thank-youawards-make-me-smile.html

Gateaway ask me after I have to stop taking it in for crashing. I think the geek squad has had it more than me

mommablogsalot said...

I have an iMac that I was kind of loving but it has fits of major unreliability and I'm currently trying out Linux on it to see if it behaves better...

Stacie said...

I have a acer aspire laptop and I love it!

Jennifer Leigh said...

Love my Dell Laptop. My hubby's HP laptop blue screens ALL THE TIME. HP won't stand behind their product and replace it either. Isn't that nice! We just get the pleasure of sending it back and forth. Because ya know...buying a laptop to mail out is convenient!

HI!

I love my hp laptop. We have a no name built PC and I love it too

I have a macbook and I do like it. I like it a lot. It is so easy to use - which is big plus for me.

I have an Acer but I wish I had a Mac. Grass is greener...

laura said...

I have only ever had Macs.. the one I have now (macbook) is my 4th mac in about 18 years and it's less than a year old. They are expensive, but you get what you pay for..

Katie said...

Our desktop is an HP. It's fine, it's about 3 years old and runs ok. Our one laptop is a Compaq, 3 years old and a piece of you-know-what. It hasn't crashed or died, but it's s...l...o...w. Our new laptop is a Dell. It's only 3 months old but works great.

Tired Mom Tésa said...

I have a Dell and it's held up pretty well. My husband is kind of techy when he wants to be so whenever we have an issue he usually figures it out and can get it back up and running like it's old self. Good luck, buying a new computer is fun but there's just so many choices!

Baba said...

I have a Dell Desktop. The Dell laptop needs reparied.

JamericanSpice said...

I have a desktop but hope to save up my little cash to buy a laptop.

Sorry about your computer. Hope you get it working soon or get the new one sooner.

Xmas Dolly said...

Oh my gosh, don't tell me that. I have an HP computer too. I just got it. Mine seems to be working good. How long have you had it? Well, if you didn't have it before get ready for Windows 7 or Vista. I don't like Vista at all, and 7 takes a little getting use to, but it's ok.

Twincerely,Olga said...

I have a HP laptop and I like it, but am in the market for a new desktop.

Jenna @ Newlyweds said...

Oh no, Computer problems are the absolute worst, I hate hate hate that. I hope you get a new one soon.

The Boob Nazi said...

I have a Dell laptop and an HP desktop. Neither are my favorite. I would like a map. meh.

Mama Geek said...

Hooo boy.
Let's see, my main desktop right now are an old Dell which is a piece of garbage, but I bought it used when it was 3 years old. It's a stopgag until I can build a new desktop.

I also have an MSIWind which I love to death. It's a little underpowered for graphics/video work, but otherwise fantastic.
