    Computer Question

    Calling all computer/gadget/tech geniuses and/or geeks. i've got a technical query.

    Bought a new laptop (its a toshiba), tell me if this is any good. All i need it for is work shit, general internet viewing and streaming football.

    The kid selling it told me something about graphics going into higher gear and lower gear (dual graphics or something like that).

    This is the info, let me know if there is other stuff i should know. Thanks in advance.

    You're best off just googling the model name ("Tobisha Notebook ***** reviews" or whatever) and reading reviews on said laptop

    800 dollars? That's around 600 euros, so yeah, it's worth it. 3 years ago i got twice worse for more money

    I bought one 2 years ago for about $1000. Was an Acer. It really pissed me off and the battery life was shocking. I put my fist through the screen

    I just didn't want another dud laptop.

    So is I5 i guess or I3 4 core is a bit to low if you ask me were my laptop is at I7 does have twice as much core, its something to do with the CPU and depend how fast the CPU is, but if you asked me 800 $ is to much, as well depends how big is the screen is it 17 or 15, how much DDR 3 Ram does it have, everything depends

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just noticed it does have 8 gm Ram so its pritty good now, but still the Core processor is important, to determent how good the Laptop is. You have to know that Ram " to change rams is easy to do it, but not CPU specially on laptops "

    go to start, search for dxdiag, open the prog that comes up in the list there.. then screencap this & we'll be able to give you a better idea.. decent amount of RAM etc though XD and never buy an Acer >.< Toshiba used to be awesome, now some of the models sound a bit cheaply made but some are still really good

    Single CPU, but 4 cores meaning it can run separate tasks in parallel and programs that support multi-threading will take advantage of it.

    It's more than fine for what you need it for. You're not doing gaming, video editing, etc. It can easily handle running web browsers, Office, sopcast, etc. without issue.

    Another question:

    Can/should I put my home videos on this ? I have a camcorder that has a hard disk and i I would copy them onto the computer in the study then burn them on a disk. But that computer keeps fucking up now (it's about 5 years old). The kid at the store told me to get an external hard drive, but just sounded like a sales pitch to me. Dunno what's good in an external hard drive.

    Yes, you can put your shit on your computer. If I can play and edit videos and shit on my old shitbox you should be fine... Unless you acquire a virus from some porn site or from dyna.

    Just get an external hard drive I4Esaurus. They're generally slower than internal hard drives but it doesn't matter much since it seems you are only using it for backups (?). Beats having to buy disks to burn to all the time. Its basically a hard drive that plugs in through USB port. Should be able to grab a 1-2TB one for a decent price.

    using external hard drive is a best way to backup file nowadays
    you can plug in at almost every device with usb port
    just buy a new LED tv so you can watch your video on it
    even my mother love that, almost everyday she watch my niece vids with that
