    What's the cost range on that, and would it be in my wheelhouse for needs? I don't need anything fancy, eff Apple, etc etc. Don't need anything for a while, but never hurts to scout around. I thought HP was basically dead.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Way beyond what the average user needs. I bought it to run business applications and do some light gaming occasionally.

    It usually starts around 1,500.

    Gotcha, thanks! Figured as much, thought I'd ask. Haven't spent more than $800 or so on my last two lappys.

    Looked at their RoG (Republic of Gamers) series. Not bad at all. Thinking I'll go with the Alienware because it seems better built.

    The only real strike against Asus tends to be battery life, but on a gaming laptop that's not a HUGE deal breaker because you're usually going to be plugged in anyway.

    I'm looking at low $2K range, heavy streaming, moderate gaming (few things on Steam I've missed out on that I'm ready to grab.)

    My battery life on both have been awesome. Can go 6 hours easy on it, with basic message-boarding, surfing. Streaming I was always plugged in (TV at home, pre-PS3, so why bother with not plugging it in?). Alienware has had a good rep since *I* was in college for gaming and such.

    My Asus had a battery life of about 3 hours if I was lucky. I'm more a desk laptop guy, so not a huge deal breaker (plus as I mentioned if you're running intense stuff you wanna be plugged in anyway.)

    Alienware is now owned by Dell. They're not the Holy Grail of gaming rigs like they once were, but are still solid under Dell's ownership. They're built like tanks (the 17 incher I'm looking at weighs just shy of 10 pounds.)

    10 lbs? Jesus.

    I'll be scouting other brands in the next few years. I mean, this latest computer has been a joke, but only compared to the monsters I had before as far as indestructibility. This is my 3rd since 1994 or so (one desktop, 2 lappys).

    Morning.

    Heading to my annual Durham Bulls game tonight. Free food and some baseball isnt a bad deal. Even if its TB vs BAL minors.

    What is the best computer for using MS Excel 3-4 times per week, and maybe use an internet browser 1 time per week?

    Find yourself something in the $500-600 range. I have an HP I picked up refurbished for about $450, normally an $800 laptop. It's great with exception to the proprietary software added by HP. FHP's software.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge 196: Spam, Spam, Spam

    Hey there Lodge. Had a dentist appointment this morning - regular cleaning. Told the hygienist I had a small canker sore back bottom left side. Turns out, not only is there that irritation, I also now need to have some deep scaling done. Greeeeaaat. Also, from time to time, I get what I think are a variation of a canker sore on the roof of my mouth. They usually last 3-5 days and then go away. All the time I go to the dentist I've never had one when I had an appointment so they can see it. I finally had one not the last time I was there but the time before. Hygienist had never seen it before. Um, OK. No biggie. It's something I've dealt with for years. Told her I could feel one this morning that started yesterday. She noticed that too.

    Then the dentist comes in for his look see. He notices a second one. Calls in his new dentist partner who is also a pathologist. I had to go into her room. She took pictures and they did a brush biopsy. Excellent. He seems to think it's a virus of some sort. I'm going to think positive about this as I've had these in the past and they just run their course. But still. You hear pathology and biopsy and your mind goes to places....

    So I get to work later than expected. I put my lunch in the fridge. Pull out my shoes out of my backpack to change from my sneakers and notice I took two different shoes with me. Big thumbs up on how this day is going. I've been trying to find someone to go out and have a tasty alcoholic beverage after work as I have not been in a while to see hottie bartender. I may wind up going by myself.

    You might look at the newer Surface laptops. They are in $1500 range, but are light, portable, and convert to tablet.

    That is much more than I want to spend. I'm thinking more in the $300-$400 range. For that price, I'll just keep using my work computer.

    Ended up going with an Acer Predator. Didn't like how the Alienware felt in person, and the Asus I looked at seemed a little shorter on specs. Loved the look and keyboard feel of the Predator, and got a pretty nice deal.
