Re: intro and buying new computer

I am hoping that blair technology group either repairs or replaces the laptop and when I get it back its working good and I may not have to buy something new for another 4 or 5 years or so.

The Stream is using EMMC flash which is slow solid state memory used in cheap tablets and laptops.  Not at all equivalent to a true SSD.  The f222wm has a conventional mechanical drive with much more storage capacity which could most likely be swapped out later for a true SSD if desired.  Besides, this argument of SSD versus conventional mechanical drive has it's limits when the buyer is clearly working on a budget.  In this case, I would say that 500 GB of conventional storage is much more valuable than 32 GB of slow EMMC solid state flash.

My pick would be the Stream for sure... SSD over standard HD any day.

I am new to the list. I recently bought a computer from blair technology
group. when it came in the mail and i tried setting it up with windows10
home this laptop was a special order with a 120gb solid state drive...
anyway narrator would not come on. i plugged in a external keyboard,
finnished setting it up and got it onto the desktop. through
experimenting i found the laptop's built-in keyboard has some keys that
do not work. so i called and asked for a return shipping label to send
it back and have it repaired. they are sending me one in the mail. But
my question sis this. if for some reason they cannot repair it and they
return my $220 I am then planning to get a new computer. my two choices
are these.
1. for $199, hp stream 11.6  inch screen windows10 home and latest
laptop with AMD e2 processor, 4gigs ram and 32gb EMMC storeage with
micro sd card slot. main issue is windows10 does not let you yet, use
the sd card as permanent storeage to store apps and all user data
including your %appdata% folder on the sd card. in other words you
cannot yet set the sd card as the default write disk for everything like
you can with some android devices like with my blu energy x phone.
or my second choice
2. for $289, hp f222wm 15 inch touch screen windows10 home latest laptop
with pentium n quad core, 500gb traditional spinning hard drive 4gigs ram.
but I hope blair technology group can repair or replace the computer and
give me a good refurbished working one. what do you all think?
