My video card on my desktop died, and it is over 6 years old, so I guess its time to get something new.
What laptop would you all recommend? Would you take the plunge and get Vista? I want basic home entertainment - don't need gaming capabilities or anything that complex. What kinds of features do I want or should I avoid?
Luckily I have everything (itunes, knitting patterns, pictures) on an external harddrive.....
well generally, I would go for an Acer or HP. but to fair, your best bet would be to set a budget limit. Then go down to your LCS (local computer store) and take a look in your price range. pretty much any laptop system you get these days is going to have Windows Vista.
Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.
That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.

I just went through the same dilemma. I went with the MacBook Pro. I'm totally loving it. I did have to shell out some $$, but it was worth it for the 17" monitor (they also sell it with small screens). It has been pretty easy to transition over as well. FYI, I had a Dell desktop for years, and I'm an IT specialist, so I work on PCs all the time.
It really depends upon how much money you have to spend and how you want to use the machine. Unless you have some reason for needing a laptop you'll get far more bang for your buck by going with another desktop machine.
What do you mean guys don't knit?
Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.
Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
