Re: Question regarding Laptops (retails tore related).

Lubuntu is a simpler solution for me than Win 7 was and Win 8 is just no IMHO.
I just download Lubuntu, simple install and then I just use it.
Went all this year without being bothered about viruses or updates since if it works then why update it??

Re: Question regarding Laptops (retails tore related).

Windows??....please!!
The first thing I do to a new laptop is wipe Windows and install a free Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Mint, etc. Linux OS.
Then with WINE I can run the Windows programs with no viruses headaches.

Re: Hard drive prices increasing!!! argggghhh!!!!

1 to 2 TB hard drives are going to be the me want item.
Check the ads but most are going to be 99+ this year.

As an alternative I am going to get a 750 GB drive for 49 dollars to tide me over until the hard drive crunch passes.

Re: How hard is it to write up a Christmas list?

A week ago, I asked my family members for Christmas lists. Tuesday, I hadn't heard from anyone so I asked again. Sister in law replies she's working on one for her and my brother. I replied and let her know I wanted it by Friday since I was planning my Black Friday shopping on Saturday. I still hav...

Re: Office Max Toshiba laptop

Toshiba! FTW!
For a faster laptop create a USB startup disk from the laptops os and then wipe the laptop and install from the usb drive to get a clean os install without the slackware/malware present on new "optimized" laptops. :wink:

Re: Movie talk

We tend to avoid movie theater visits in favor of blu ray. Last movie we saw was Transformers Dark side of the Moon and in the movie theater the sound was kind of lacking compared to how we like it to sound on our DIY Home Theater. Twilight series is on our no watch list since story is eh? and sound...
