When it comes to buying a laptop, there is plenty of value available to you if you don’t have a large budget. If you are looking to spend just a little bit of money to get a computer that can surf the Internet, do your banking, check your email and play that Facebook game that you have wanted to play, you will be pleasantly surprised as to what you can actually get for under $400.
Sure, these machines won’t play the cutting edge games as well as you might like, but they make a perfect desktop replacement, computer for your child, or even as a computer that won’t shut off right away on your during a thunderstorm.

One of the most common questions that I get is about places that you can find affordable Powerbook parts and repairs. Quite frankly, I had never really thought about it until I wrote on this blog, so I asked my friends that owned Macs.
And all I heard was silence – at least from everyone except for Bruce.
Bruce has been a hardcore Mac user since the day that I met him, and I have failed to woo him to the dark side (using a PC). But that also means that he has been an invaluable expert when it comes to questions relating to computers that I know little about.
He suggested that the best place that has worked for him has been PowerbookMedic.com. He had purchased a memory upgrade from them in the past, and was very happy with their service and prices.
I decided to look a little deeper, and all I found was countless praises for their prices and service. Their site also offers free repair manuals which is perfect if you want to attempt to repair your gadgets yourself.
I was able to find a coupon where you can get 5% off $50 at PowerBookMedic.com which is a great way to try them out.
Feel free to leave feedback about their service below – I’d love to hear from you.
One of the things that can really help your laptop (or desktop computer) perform at its best is by having the most up to date drivers on your computer. Manufacturers are working all the time to increase the speed, compatibility and efficiency of their driver software to make sure that the hardware in your machine works the best it possibly can for you. Quite often, updating the drivers on your computer can create noticeable speed improvements.
But when you consider the number of devices that are in your computer, the thought of trying to upgrade the driver for each one becomes a tedious process. There has never really been an easy way to do this, and even if you were a computer guru, updating the drivers on your computer could take hours.
But not anymore.
For the past few weeks, I have been trying a new piece of software called Driver Robot. The software is designed to keep your drivers on your computer up to date automatically. This means that you don’t have to waste hours of your time trying to do it yourself, or hire a computer technician to do it for you. It is also smart enough to install drivers that work specifically with your machine so you don’t accidentally install the wrong ones (which if you have ever done that, you know what a disaster it can be).
I recommend Driver Robot as the software of choice for my computer consulting clients, and even though it has meant less work for me as a computer repair tech, I know that they appreciate having a machine that is working well all of the time.
