So my old faithful 5 year old Sony Vaio crashed or rather was ruined by Mission Repair in Olathe who fried it's motherboard when trying to repair the charger port. Of course they claimed no fault. I replaced it with a 350 dollar Samsung laptop that was nothing but trouble.

After trying to get it repaired correctly from the business that sold it to me on 4 different occasions I demanded my money back. It was a small family business so after a few threats from me the owner gave me 225 back.

My question is what is better ..getting another laptop that I will spend no more than 350 ..or a tablet for the same approximate price. I like that new Samsung 10 inch tablet with the super high definition screen but it's about 550.But it is sweet so might get it anyway. Appreciate any input on the matter.

New vs upgrading. Just depends on how good your computer parts are with what tech company's have on the market that sets the benchmark.

Tricky question, really.

You can provide a computer spec list often submitted for Computer Professional to analyze computer problems. I forgot how, but maybe a computer guy will state the command prompt or O/S shortcut if you are willing to copy your computer specs.

Computers are expensive right now, but if you don't have a working one then you buy when you have to with HP - Refurbished - 17.3" Pavilion Notebook - 4 GB Memory - 500 GB Hard Drive for $359.50 looks like value.

I didn't check any competitors, nor do I have computer network connections so...

Well doesn't a tablet with Cloud capabilities just as function able as a moderate priced laptop?

I think it's a great bargain. Where ever you go, you can get internet connection and its durable for all condition except the freezing temperature. You cannot rely on cell phone coverage everywhere.

Any one know why computer graphic don't work in the extreme cold? Curious.
