Re: Laptops vs Computer laptops Question Please.


Open box doesn't mean someone had the laptop for a year. Normally it
means someone got it and returned it. I really really hope you find
what you are looking for. I have a dell refurbished laptop and it runs
great so I have no problem with buying refurbished

Hi Monte,
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.

Hi Janet,

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

Hi Juan,
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
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
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.

Good luck.

Hi everyone,
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.
