Yeah I suppose. How would I get MS office onto it through?

Presumably it would still be OK for i tunes etc though.

Tempted to buy it like.

I'm probably going to buy a new laptop soon - looking at ones that with 4gb ram and 500gb storage.  Willing to spend up to £550, maybe £600 at a push if I'm getting something worth the money.  I know f***-all about this s**** tbh, but quite like the look of this:

Does that look any good?  Am I better off waiting until January or what?

Are Netbooks any good compared to Laptops?

The only game I play is FM and the rest of my usage is basic internet, pretty much just here and facebook and twitter.

My laptop has died so want to get a new one and want to know if a netbook is worth it. I know one N-O poster who is never without his little white netbook but he does look a little bit of a tit carrying it round.

What would you suggest?

The only game I would ever play is FM, can it be played on an iPad?
Sir John Hall: "I was told that the man behind the deal was Mike Ashley and I sat with his representatives over three days thrashing out a deal. I was keen to know why they wanted the club and they were quite honest. They wanted to market their sports goods in the Far East and would use the club to help do this."

I just heard Google is coming out with a laptop that lacks a caps lock key. A little unexpected.
"Whenever I have a nightmare it isn't in colour.  It's always black and white, the colours of the meanest, toughest  club ever to run on to a football field.  Collingwood.  I've laboured the point of my hatred of Collingwood and it isn't a friendly dislike - as a club they rankle me.  You couldn't like them, they think they are God's gift to football, they shun all outsiders and the only time I like to think of Collingwood is when they lose, because it hurts them so much. I've always been a bad loser, but I'm a good sport compared to Collingwood.  If they win they gloat, if they lose they hide themselves away and sulk.  When they lose they never visit your rooms or congratulate you and they'll send you round hot beer to have a drink.  I wouldn't drink anything they offered, you wouldn't know what they had done to it."

Anyone who likes a laptop that works offline, should stay will away from the the google laptop.  It's only designed to be used when you are connected in reality.

Google OS computers will basically be netbooks, they can't do any real task without going online, basically the OS will only allow you to go online.

Looking for a new laptop and sadly saying goodbye to the mac community as I can't justify it being an extra £400 or whatever, much as I like them. My budget is around £500-600 and as per most of the geeks on here the main use will be internet, music and photo storage albeit with some microsoft office and FM thrown in. All advice appreciated as I'm a retard with this sort of thing. Ta.

I bookmarked a shitload of laptops I wanted to compare the other day. Now I want to start comparing and every f***ing website is down. Dixons, Currys and PC World. That company's so f***ing s***.

Can anyone help? Or will I just be fine getting anything from PC World (or equivalent) for £500?

I'm off out to get this one any minute:

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/sony-vaio-vpceb3f4e-wi-white-laptop-07580264-pdt.html

Same as Barack Obama's.  I've looked around and to my limited knowledge it seems about as good as anything else for the price.  Only thing it lacks is an HDMI port - there are a few similar spec Dells on PC World with HDMI ports, but without Bluetooth.  I really fancy having Bluetooth as I don't bother faffing around getting photos from phone to computer at the minute.

I'm also an idiot with this stuff though, don't get me wrong.  Was asking similar questions in Daft Questions last night.

:lol:

I don't know what difference it being a Vaio makes and I haven't got the energy to work out what's actually good. I'm sure that whatever I get around that price will do tbh.
