I want to buy a new laptop soon and am planning to spend around $400 on it. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or could point me in the right direction.
All I really think I would like it to be able to handle is:
Star Wars: The Old Republic
Dungeons & Dragons Online
Typical internet stuff (Youtube, Flash-games, Etc.)
Should I try to get Windows 7 or Windows 8? Should I save up even more to buy a really kick-ass one instead? I'm fairly certain I'll have the $400 by the end of the month...
The other thing I'm wondering about is this. My Mothers laptop is a Compaq Presario with Windows 7 on it. She got it a while ago but now it's slow as all hell despite defragging and such. Is there any way to combat this? Is there any way to fix her laptop? I googled it and all that comes up is those computer cleaning programs you have to download but I have no idea if they can be trusted, and if it's a virus then I'm wondering how it got past Norton...
