I'm considering buying my very first laptop computer..........my wife has a 17 inch Dell Insipiron, and she likes it. Myself, I've always had a desktop. I'm not sure what screen size.........I've seen some as small as 10.1 inches in the shops, very easy to carry, but not sure if this would be suitable over the long haul.........my first thought was to get a 15.6 inch, but it seems to me that smaller may be better. But when I use the wife's machine, I certainly appreciate the 17 inch screen. I'm really at a loss here..........is bigger better or is smaller? So, I'd love to hear from folks about the best size screen, which is surely a tradeoff between visibility and screen real estate on the one hand, and portablilty and weight and perhaps battery life on the other hand. All comments much appreciated.
HI! I have never have been familiar with notebooks but I bought one for office use (it's able to game a bit as well), an Acer V552G All this to ask : How of a pain is it to swap the sold HDD in said notebook for a SSD (I don't mind about space) knowing that I only have a USB stick with the Windows 8 installation on it. I must add that I bought full retail Windows DVD for my other computers at home. So doing the swap, would I need a store tech to install it for me (knowing I only got Windows 8 on that specific USB stick), could I simply install Windows with that stick, or would I need to format and install Win 7 from one of my DVD's and then upgrade to Win 8? Thanks!
