Well, if you know how to use NVDA, you can always put it on a thumb drive and stick in the laptop and you can set it up using NVDA instead of narrator! And you can take that portable copy and install it on your laptop as a full copy if you want to use NVDA! But narrator will set up windows and it will talk you threw it; just have turn it on. The tricky part is to set up a local account instead of a Microsoft account; they changed it now! Cheers Heather

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Laptops vs Computer laptops Question Please.
The only difference between the Intel and the AMD is $100 so far as I can see. But, like you say, if the keys are right, and I plan on using it for as long as I can, I might as well pay the extra! Smile! So, I think I will go to Best Buy tomorrow, and cancel the Asus, and feel the other ones there. So now, if I do buy a different one, I might have to try and set it up myself, and this means I will have to deal with Narrator once again, as the Geeks are so busy people need to schedule an appointment at least a few days in advance, but who knows, maybe they just might set it up for me, just to get rid of me once in for all! LOL! If not, I might have to schedule an appointment just so I can finally get up and running!
Thank you for all this.

If I were buying a new laptop or desktop, I would not care if the processor was intel or a m d, if they were of equal speed and price.
It’s really just a brand.
If it costs a few dollars more, get the one that feels right for your fingers and hands;; you’ll be felling that keyboard for many hundreds of hours!

I did go in to the Best Buy store, and I felt the keys on the Asus, and I did like that as it also had a NumPad. I just didn’t know it was what Best Buy calls out of the box, as the salesmen never told me that. I also seen a HP Laptop I liked, and I also seen a Dell Laptop I liked, but I now don’t know if all those Laptops are out of the box, meaning someone could have brought it back to the store as a trade in after they might have had it for several months or even a year. Although, as I am searching online, I have noticed the Asus Laptops now have the Intell processor instead of the AMD Risen like the one I bought. So, I don’t really know what all that means. Can you tell me what kind of keyboard you have with those keys, as that sounds like something I would like as well, or is it the Lenovo one you currently have? I had a Lenovo a few weeks ago, and the problem I had with the keys on the keyboard, was the keys would stick down in the board when I pressed them. The keys were to large for my fingers, and they were to many different shapes, meaning some of them were long, some of them were short.
Thank you for all this.
A great method of finding the right laptop for you is to go into a computer shop and have some hands on with the laptop. I personally do not like the crammed keyboards so I went in and found one that has great spacing. I also wanted one with a number pad and this one had it. I also would stay with any of the intel core I5 computers or AMD Ryzen 5 and up for processors. 8 GB Ram and SSD of 250 GB or higher.
Lenovo is my computer manufacture of choice right now but that doesn’t mean there isn’t other good computers in the dell, hp, lineups.

Thank you for this. I won’t be doing any gaming or video though. I want a Laptop basically for using email, basic editing, etc. So I know what I want, but trying to find it is another thing. LOL!
Hi these are like model names, think pad and ideapad from Linovo as far as I know and vivobook from Asus.
They are like series, and you can find plenty of models in that series, just as for example, iPad pro 2018, 2020 etc.
Naturally 2020 model will have more updated specs such as processor or ram etc.
Think pad for example 14inch laptop with intel processer and several models coming either i5 or i7 and all of them U which means low energy consumption.
So all of them laptop just different companies and different models.
You have others similar to these, dell xps, hp specter etc.
To know which one you should pick, first decide for what you are getting the device for, if heavy gaming or video editing etc, these are not so good, but for productivity and portability, these are perfect.
And laptops which are for gaming and more than 14-15 inch will be not so great with portability hence they will be quite heavy.

Can someone please explain to me the difference between a Laptop ThinkPad or an IdeaPad or a Vivobook Laptop, as opposed to a computer Laptop? I am doing some searching on line about the Laptop Vivobook I recently bought, as it is showing this is not a new Laptop, and I didn't know that as the salesmen at Best Buy didn't tell me that. So I am seeing sales for computer Laptops and ThinkPad Laptops, IdeaPad Laptops, Vivobook Laptops, but then I see different prices for computer Laptops.
Thank you all for any help in this.
Peace Be With You.
