Hi Heather,

This is good to hear, as when I was at Best Buy last week, I did feel a HP, and I was very close to buying that, and it did feel pretty nice, matter of fact, the HP even had a VD driver, I don’t know if I would really need that though, but I guess it is nice to have one just in case.  So if I end up getting that, and if I need to know where the keys are, can I ask you? How did you set up your Laptop? Did someone do it for you, or did you use Narrator and do it yourself?

Janet

I usually always buy hp as I like the lay out of their keyboards. I usually  use a Bluetooth key board with the laptop. It makes it easy for me to type faster for me. I did not like the surface it did not stand up very well like the ipads do with their keyboards. I know most hp laptops have the arrow keys all at the bottom and their usually are spaced right left down and up with know other keys mixed in with them. One of my old laptops had a nompad on the laptop. Now I can do with out if I have my own external keyboard. I use the motifier key with the caps lock as my insert key with jaws and NVDA. If I need to use the laptop key borad. I try to stay away from touch screens or touch bars; they can be annoying. One simple touch and you muted your sound or turned the wireless card off.   Good luck! Cheers Heather

Hi Heather,

Yeah, this is turning in to a mess with Best Buy, although I usually have pretty good luck with them, but I now know those salesmen really don’t know anything themselves about the products Best Buy sells, in which surprises   me.  I guess I would have to talk to a Geek!  I do like to feel the keys on the Laptop though, and I am just thinking Asus Laptops might have all the same keys on their Laptops, but I’m not for sure though.  Right now, I see on Best Buy’s web site all of the Asus Laptops are now with Intell processors instead of the one I bought which was AMD Risen, so I wonder why the changes now.  I don’t know what I will end up with now!  LOL!  Although I do see all the Laptops are extremely expensive.  I am thinking I will have to cancel this with Best Buy.

I hate working with best buy and their service is much to be desired; I have a friend who is already having issues with them. I know how important it is to see something before one buys it. But, if you can decide on which brand your comfortable with, dell, hp, IBM, lenobo etc. I would try to deal directly with the  company. They all usually are shipping for free these days. Geek squad is not all it is cracked up to be. Most time you have to send back to best buy so they can than ship your item out to a third party if it needs any work. Cheers Heather

Hi Nimer,

Ok I got it.  thank you for this.  Ok, I will be going to Best Buy tomorrow supposed to pick up my Asus Vivobook Laptop, but as I read more about it on line, and the emails I’ve received from Best Buy, are saying this Asus vivobook is no longer sold as new, so when I went to Best Buy a few days ago to buy something else, I asked the salesmen if the Laptop I bought was new, and he said as far as he knows it is, but as I am now searching on line, I still see this Laptop is no longer sold as new.  The emails I am getting from Best Buy is from Best Buy Outlet. And they are thanking me for shopping at the Outlet, but the Best Buy I go to is not an Outlet though.  I also search online to see what they charged me, but I can’t find that either, and when I was at Best Buy a few days ago, they couldn’t find any balance on my account either, and this makes me feel a little uncomfortable, So having said all this, I don’t know what I just might end up with!  Smile!

  What a mess!  LOL!   

 

Janet

Hello Janet,

 

All of these are brands. Similar to brands of shampoo. They are all shampoo, but the manufacturer is different, the purpose for which it is made is different, the bottle is shaped differently, etc. Same goes with these laptops. Vivobooks are made by Asus. Thinkpads are made by Lenovo, Inspiron and XPS are made by Dell, and so on. You not only need to look at the type of computer, but also the model, as each few months to a year, manufacturers may release different models within the same class of laptop. Also, the specs between each model will be different. For instance, Thinkpad has many different laptops within that name, some have numpads, some do not, etc. Some are made for business use, some for personal use, some have large touch screens, some do not, some have fingerprint readers, some do not, some have large batteries, some are made for the purpose of being workstation desktop replacements, and so on. Computer laptop is a generic... it's just a laptop. This is akin to calling any tissue a kleenex.

 

I hope this helps.

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.

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!

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.

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.

 

Good luck.

I wanted to report on the accessibility of the LG. Classic flip phone from Net10. I was pleasantly surprised on how well read out works.(read out is the screen reader). You will need sighted help to turn on read out in the Initial setup. After that you can read all menus, settings contact, messages and etc. Manual is not much help with explaining the accessible settings. Haven't tested Internet browser or
typing. But this might be a good phone for some people who
don't need a full smart phone. It can be purchased for $39 or less if you buy a plan with the phone.

Yeah, this is turning in to a mess with Best Buy, although I usually have pretty good luck with them, but I now know those salesmen really don’t know anything themselves about the products Best Buy sells, in which surprises   me.  I guess I would have to talk to a Geek!  I do like to feel the keys on the Laptop though, and I am just thinking Asus Laptops might have all the same keys on their Laptops, but I’m not for sure though.  Right now, I see on Best Buy’s web site all of the Asus Laptops are now with Intell processors instead of the one I bought which was AMD Risen, so I wonder why the changes now.  I don’t know what I will end up with now!  LOL!  Although I do see all the Laptops are extremely expensive.  I am thinking I will have to cancel this with Best Buy.

I hate working with best buy and their service is much to be desired; I have a friend who is already having issues with them. I know how important it is to see something before one buys it. But, if you can decide on which brand your comfortable with, dell, hp, IBM, lenobo etc. I would try to deal directly with the  company. They all usually are shipping for free these days. Geek squad is not all it is cracked up to be. Most time you have to send back to best buy so they can than ship your item out to a third party if it needs any work. Cheers Heather

Hi Nimer,

Ok I got it.  thank you for this.  Ok, I will be going to Best Buy tomorrow supposed to pick up my Asus Vivobook Laptop, but as I read more about it on line, and the emails I’ve received from Best Buy, are saying this Asus vivobook is no longer sold as new, so when I went to Best Buy a few days ago to buy something else, I asked the salesmen if the Laptop I bought was new, and he said as far as he knows it is, but as I am now searching on line, I still see this Laptop is no longer sold as new.  The emails I am getting from Best Buy is from Best Buy Outlet. And they are thanking me for shopping at the Outlet, but the Best Buy I go to is not an Outlet though.  I also search online to see what they charged me, but I can’t find that either, and when I was at Best Buy a few days ago, they couldn’t find any balance on my account either, and this makes me feel a little uncomfortable, So having said all this, I don’t know what I just might end up with!  Smile!

  What a mess!  LOL!

Hello Janet,

 

All of these are brands. Similar to brands of shampoo. They are all shampoo, but the manufacturer is different, the purpose for which it is made is different, the bottle is shaped differently, etc. Same goes with these laptops. Vivobooks are made by Asus. Thinkpads are made by Lenovo, Inspiron and XPS are made by Dell, and so on. You not only need to look at the type of computer, but also the model, as each few months to a year, manufacturers may release different models within the same class of laptop. Also, the specs between each model will be different. For instance, Thinkpad has many different laptops within that name, some have numpads, some do not, etc. Some are made for business use, some for personal use, some have large touch screens, some do not, some have fingerprint readers, some do not, some have large batteries, some are made for the purpose of being workstation desktop replacements, and so on. Computer laptop is a generic... it's just a laptop. This is akin to calling any tissue a kleenex.

 

I hope this helps.

Re: Laptops vs Computer laptops Question Please.

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. 

Janet

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.

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.

 

Good luck.

will need sighted help to turn on read out in the Initial
setup. After that you can read all menus, settings contact,

typing. But this might be a good phone for some people who
don't need a full smart phone. It can be purchased for $39
or less if you buy a plan with the phone.

No, but when you connect your laptop to the WIFI, you will
have to enter

I'm not sure if it asks for anything else.

As far as I know, you won't have to set up security if all
you want to do is
use the program Mivcrosoft provides with Windows. As I
recall, its system
Defender.

You may want to use something in addition such as Malware
Bytes but System
Defender is a highly rated program and you will be unlikely
to need
something else unless you want to use something like
Malwaare Bytes.

You will have to go through some sort of procedure as has
been discussed
here when you first use the computer. Aside from what you
are discussing,
the only thing I can think of is to set up your computer to
work with your
WIFI, unless at home, you are going to connect your computer
to your router
by cable. I don't know enough about how you set up your
computer to work
with your WIFI to discuss it. When I had my modem set up
here, the
serviceman set up my laptop to work with it. I think AT&T
does that for
customers when a router is connected by them.

As the subject says, I got a notification saying that my windows license will expire soon, and had two options, go to PC settings or close buttons. When I went to PC settings I there was an activate button and a place to write a key.

 

I got my laptop some years ago with Windows 8, which I was able to upgrade freely to Windows 8.1.

 

My issue is, does this kind of license expire? Is there something I could do to avoid it?

 

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Hi,

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.

 

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.

I hate working with best buy and their service is much to be desired; I have a friend who is already having issues with them. I know how important it is to see something before one buys it. But, if you can decide on which brand your comfortable with, dell, hp, IBM, lenobo etc. I would try to deal directly with the  company. They all usually are shipping for free these days. Geek squad is not all it is cracked up to be. Most time you have to send back to best buy so they can than ship your item out to a third party if it needs any work. Cheers Heather

Hi Nimer,

Ok I got it.  thank you for this.  Ok, I will be going to Best Buy tomorrow supposed to pick up my Asus Vivobook Laptop, but as I read more about it on line, and the emails I’ve received from Best Buy, are saying this Asus vivobook is no longer sold as new, so when I went to Best Buy a few days ago to buy something else, I asked the salesmen if the Laptop I bought was new, and he said as far as he knows it is, but as I am now searching on line, I still see this Laptop is no longer sold as new.  The emails I am getting from Best Buy is from Best Buy Outlet. And they are thanking me for shopping at the Outlet, but the Best Buy I go to is not an Outlet though.  I also search online to see what they charged me, but I can’t find that either, and when I was at Best Buy a few days ago, they couldn’t find any balance on my account either, and this makes me feel a little uncomfortable, So having said all this, I don’t know what I just might end up with!  Smile!

  What a mess!  LOL!

Hello Janet,

 

All of these are brands. Similar to brands of shampoo. They are all shampoo, but the manufacturer is different, the purpose for which it is made is different, the bottle is shaped differently, etc. Same goes with these laptops. Vivobooks are made by Asus. Thinkpads are made by Lenovo, Inspiron and XPS are made by Dell, and so on. You not only need to look at the type of computer, but also the model, as each few months to a year, manufacturers may release different models within the same class of laptop. Also, the specs between each model will be different. For instance, Thinkpad has many different laptops within that name, some have numpads, some do not, etc. Some are made for business use, some for personal use, some have large touch screens, some do not, some have fingerprint readers, some do not, some have large batteries, some are made for the purpose of being workstation desktop replacements, and so on. Computer laptop is a generic... it's just a laptop. This is akin to calling any tissue a kleenex.

 

I hope this helps.

Typically the dark squares are raised and the light squares are lowered slightly.


Chessboard question

Dave
 

Hello,


I am going to make a Chessboard Blind Friendly and need to know which squares are Raised, the Light, or the dark ones?


I don't know that is makes much difference, but if there are any Chess wizards out there who know the answer to this question, would you let me know which squares are raised?


Thanks ahead of time,


Grumpy Dave
