Recommendations for Good Quality Laptop Under $350

Q: Recommendations for Good Quality Laptop Under $350

Hello everyone:

Back in 2014, I purchased a Dell Latitude e6500 laptop computer used from eBay. It has been a good laptop for me, and I like the build quality of the computer.

Due to the age of the computer, it's pretty much impossible to upgrade the computer unless I'm willing to shell out lots of money. With the amount of money that it would cost for me to upgrade that computer, I'd be better off buying a different computer. I only paid $200 including shipping for the computer back then. Even if I were to upgrade the computer, I still wouldn't see the speeds I'd hope for because of how old the computer is.

So here's what I'm looking for. I'm looking to buy either a new or used laptop computer. I've got up to $350 to spend on one. I would like at least an intel i7 processor of some sort, 8GB or more of RAM, would prefer an SSD drive. DVD drive is still a requirement for me, backlit keyboard, at least 15 inch screen or larger. legitimate copy of Windows 10 home or professional. Primary use for this computer would be web browsing, use of microsoft office applications, I need to run a VM on it with no problems because I am taking a linux class, and I might do a little gaming with the computer too as well as some video editing.

I would prefer that it is a business style type of laptop computer as they tend to be built with better quality components compared to other laptops anyone can buy. I would prefer not to get an HP laptop as I've had back luck with HP products, but any other brand is ok. I would need to make a purchase and have it before the 9th of January.

I am currently looking at possibly getting a Dell Latitude e6530, but wanted to see other options too.

Your recommendations and GO!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently I got a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 15R with Nvidia GeForce GT 525M. When I play my videos on this laptop however the video quality is poor, it is blurry and pixellated and is worse than my old laptop, on which all my videos were perfect. I thought it might be a codec problem so I have installed pretty much every codec pack under the sun but there has been no difference, videos still look poor in VLC, WMP, WMPC and Windows Media Centre. I also updated the driver for my video card but this did nothing.
Today I plugged my laptop into my tv using a VGA cable and not only is the video quality on the TV excellent but the video quality on my laptop also became better while plugged into the tv (although the video became squashed into the middle), so I am thinking that the problem may be due to my resolution? I have tried all the resolutions for my laptop but none have made any difference when the video is played in full screen, the video does not look as good as when it was plugged into my tv.
Any help would be appreciated on this matter, what did my tv do to make my laptop's video quality better, how can I make videos appear better on my laptop?
Thanks

A:Poor video quality on laptop but good on TV?

Hi Gumdrop. the rule of thumb is: "It all depends". Unless you know what you ar doing it is not recommended that you remove anything with HijackThis. Many files that show up are legitimate files and if you remove the wrong ones you could render your computer inoperable.

Last month, I don't know but somehow my system crashed and when I re-installed windows, I started getting emails from some anonymous person mentioning that they have my bank account details. Although I checked with the bank and made sure everything is in place, I am now looking for recommendations regarding which VPN service should I use?
 
A friend of mine recommended me a brand by the name of PureVPN. I checked out their pricing page and it mentions their per month price is around $7. I need help! Is it any good or has anyone tried it before? 
I am just reluctant that if I am gonna spend my money, I need to make sure that they are offering me complete security because I have had pretty bad experiences as of now. 
Any genuine recommendations from users who have used any before in this regard would be very much appreciated.

I used to use ZoneAlarm, but I wasn't able to find it when I loaded up my new system. I have a cable modem and I'm aware of all the horror stories and the danger. I was very satisfied with Zonealarm, but apparently it is no longer available; in any case, when I try to find it, I get lots of "can't be found" messages. So...I have two questions...: has Gibson maybe gone out of business or is no longer offering zonealarm, or 2) can someone recommend a really good personal firewall that will offer good protection.

Long story short: My trusty wired Linksys G router is - I believe - beginning to fail. I have had it for over six years. About a year and a half ago I bought a TrendNet Access Point to provide wireless throughout my house because everyone has a laptop in my family.

On occasion I would have to reboot the access point but now I am finding in the last six weeks that I have to reboot my router more and more. Perhaps the AP is the cause but I don't think so.

In my research I read a real mixed bag of results when it comes Wireless N Routers so I need some solid advice.

Budget: $100 but would love to purchase for less as long as it is good. Be willing to go $125.

Thanks.

For years I used Outlook for my e-mail, but about a year ago I switched to Thunderbird. I really like it's features, but lately it's been giving me some fits. One thing is that it won't automatically receive new e-mails. I have to click on the Get Mail button. I think I'm pretty familiar with all the server settings, and have tried several different ones. I have three addresses that send me mail, and I have two of them set so I have to Get Mail to receive their e-mails. But I still don't get mail automatically on my primary address.

Since I've tried about everything I know (including reinstalling the program) to no avail, does anyone have a suggestion for another good e-mail program? I love the junk mail features of Thunderbird, but it's just becoming a hassle. If I forget to "Get Mail," I won't get it at all.

Anyone following me within the last few days should know about my struggles in getting rid of this malware known as Backdoor Tidserv Request. Well, hopefully with the assistance of the people here in these forums (which I think is becoming my third home rather quickly), I think it's gone for good.

Anyway, the one thing that I kept thinking about (or dreading) is that the person helping me would tell me to push . . . . the button. You know, the one marked "Format your hard drive". The red button. The nuclear button. Yep, that one. Yet before I could do even that, I would have to push another button. The one marked "Backup your data." Except for one thing. I have no clue how to backup my data. Other than of course using whatever CD/DVD burning programs I have on my PC and a pile of CDs/DVDs, that's pretty much all I have.

So, anyone out there can recommend some good software to use to backup my data? I have Roxio CD/DVD Creator (probably not the full version, just whatever came with my Dell when I bought it) and I think I still have Nero somewhere in my software CDS (probably not a full version either, just whatever came bundled with my CD/DVD burner when I upgraded the original burner from my first PC). Didn't Windows XP come out with a backup program?

I currently have an Audigy 2 ZS, which is a fairly decent card for my needs, but I'm going to be doing high-res vinyl rips (24/96) soon - once I get the turntable setup - and this card isn't going to be worth it. Apparently it does funny things by re sampling and putting it through DSP functions.

Anyway, I'm now after a new card. I've only seen Creative ones readily available, so not sure what else there is. The kinds of specs I need are: digital in/out, 5.1(+) analog out, ability to play/record at minimum 24bit 96khz (if it can do higher than awesome). Doesn't need a front display panel or firewire input. Microphone input should be standard but not a concern.

I'm looking at spending as little as possible (as always) but want to get something decent. So maybe the equivilant of $250AUD. Don't worry about price to begin with, just suggest whatever suits my needs and I'll organise a suitable budget.

I have binned my 5.1, the subwoofer was playing up. I have purchased a pair of Logitech Z-2300. I kid you not, the sound quality through WMP is unreal.

The problem i have is when i initially first set up, i only connected the green cable from the subwoofer to the green jack on my soundcard. I went to the soundcard settings and set all the settings to do with base to max. I played 'Ludicris - Yeah' from WMP and the room shook, only on half volume. The quality was unreal.

I then decided to try the speakers out with VDJ while doing a mix. I connected the RMX Splitter into the back of 'Line in' on my soundcard. I went to the settings of my soundcard and changed the volume to "100% Line-In"

I opened up VDJ and played the same song. I notice it wasn't so clear and wasn't half as basey.

I then disconnected all 2 cables from my soundcard and linked them together with a female RCA cable (Below). So now my RMX and speakers are 'looped' and my RMX is acting as the soundcard. There are no cables in my soundcard.

The sound was terrible, i played around with a few settings but its not changed any thing. Can anyone suggest why? or how to fix this so the sound quality would be as good as it was when only the subwoofer's green cable was plugged into the soundcard and i was playing from WMP?

Thanks
Dan

A:Sound quality no so good with 'Line-In'

My Bad.

I didn't see the tab "Recording" in the sound settings and when i did find the right recording device, i needed to click 'listen' and put the volume up to 100%.

It now has 'Studio quality' that sounded like WMP. All fixed now.

I have made a couple of animations with Flash, and I've converted it to mp4 because that's what youtube says is the preferred file type. Unfortunately, my first problem is that the conversion does not turn out very good. Does anybody know of a good conversion software so that I can get mp4 in good quality. Flash saves files in types like flv, or mov, or avi, or swf. (off the top of my head)
It also gets a bit blurrier when I upload to youtube itself. I've been on sites that suggest people use a "video encoder". I don't even know what that is, and since I'm using Flash, do I even need to do that? The second thing they suggest is to compress the videos using other software. Again, if my file is under 1 gig, theoretically that is good for youtube, but would it better for my video quality if I compress it before uploading it to Youtube?

Anyway, I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this, or suggestions.

Bigk
 

A:Recommendations on good point and click adventure games?

If you don't mind playing older games then search for "The Longest Journey"...Great story, challenging but not extremely difficult. TLG originally came for win 98 and when I tried it on xp it wouldn't load. But I'm sure there's an xp compatible version out as well.

Check out "Still Life" if you like detective stories and mystery. Great game...

I've also enjoyed playing Runaway: A Road Adventure and it's sequel, Runaway: Dream of the Turtle. Those two were designed with a more comical approach and cartoon like grapphics.

You can of course check out the "Myst" series of games, note however that they are really tough to complete.

Black Mirror and Syberia 1&2 are good games if you are just starting playing this genre. They are quite easy but fun too.

The most recent adventure I've played was Overclocked: A History of Violence. Good enough game.

I'll post back with more titles if you're interested.

Hi,

I would like to buy a Satellite S50, and connect it to
- hd digital TV ( I will buy in the future)
- hd digital monitor with TV (I have a other model of 1920x1080)
- analog TV (I have a cca. 9 year old Panasonic model )

How is it possible?
What parameters are necessary?
What kind of picture would be generated by a Satellite S50 with 1,366 x 768 resolutionn on a 1920x1080 device?

So brief: which models could I use?
Thanks in advance!

A:Which Satellite S50 has to be choosen to have good TV picture quality?

You have to check the video out properties of the graphic card which are installed in single notebooks.
But in most cases the graphic cards supports an external resolution which is higher than an FHD resolution ?1920x1080? which is supported by all Full HD TVs.

ok this problem has been plaging me for years. I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro U400 windows 8.1.

As far as I can remember is it bad in windows 7.

Contextant driver is bad and so is windows 8.1 generic driver.

please help

A:Satellite Pro U400 - audio quality not good

To be honest, I have no idea what you mean exactly by ?quality is awful?.
I owned an Satellite U400 notebook is the past and I have to say that the sound quality was good enough.

The Satellite U400 is a small 13.3? notebook and the speakers were fitted to the notebook dimensions.
The Conexant sound chip is part of the motherboard and you will not be able to replace it.

If you want to use another sound card, you can try to use an external USB audio interface.
I use such external sound solution for my home recording studio.

The audio interface is connected to notebook?s USB port and the external speakers are commenced to the external audio interface.

By the way: Satellite U400 isn't is the list of Win 8.1 supported notebooks... so you will not find any Win 8.1 drivers for this unit on Toshiba driver website.

Hello all, I am new to the forum.

I am looking into getting a Razer Edge or Razer Edge Pro as my next computer. I have a couple questions, however. What is the battery life on both of these tablets, and what external/secondary/backup batteries are available? Is the overall user experience proficient, and is Windows 8.1 available on it? Next, are both good for some gaming such as Titanfall, old Halo games, some Steam games, and possibly would it be compatible with very old Need For Speed titles such as the original (Not the new one) Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit or High Stakes? How heavy is the tablet, and I can't afford the dedicated gaming case/controller so would a regular PS3 controller work for gaming? I am mainly going to be using this computer for school (In mostly every class period), the games I specified, watching DVR'd shows via the DIRECTV GenieGO, usual social media/internet browsing, and as I am learning HTML graphic design and coding. Would this tablet meet my needs, or is there a better choice for me? Also, is the docking station worth it for this device or not? Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

I have a Dell Dimension 2400, which has 3 PCI slots and an integrated video card. I'm looking to play games. That's my aim with the card I get. Games that have a minimum requirement of Geforce 6600 or Raydeon(sp?) 9500. So do cards with these capabilities come in PCI compatible forms? And I want one that give me reasonably good play, not just a slideshow.

Pretty much the best you can get in PCI format.

This is getting to be a really big issue because my network adapter just can't get a stable connection to our wireless modem.
I would just move it but i am still in high school and ,despite the fact that i basically set up my families home network, my dad believes that he requires the best connection because he pays for the service. While i can understand that to an extent he is
almost never on the network...
So that is where i am stuck, because i would like to fully utilize our internet and the shoddy two bar connection i have right now is far from it.
To be honest i can do just about anything but move my router. My motherboard comes with a 10/100/1000 mbps ethernet connector and i also have a tplink wdn4800 installed. I cannot do it right now but very soon i am going to be moving my room around so the
radio antennas will be able to point towards my modem, but i wouldn't count on it because i have manually rotated my whole case so the radios could point somewhat directly at my modem but it did not help very much.
Ideas?
