Like others in here, now that Windows 7 has arrived I am thinking of replacing my aging XP Desktop with a new shiny Laptop. I will never play games but will process a lot of photos and the usual emailing and browsing. My budget is around the £500 mark give or take a few quid. There are plenty in Currys or PC World at that price range but is that the best deal? I will need finance on it as well.
Also I have thousands of photos on the old desktop and saved on a plug in hard drive. My idea would be to process the photos on my new one and then use the old one to save them on. Is that practical? Or are the two systems not able to save in the same format. I always use JPEG by the way as most of mine are just for web use.
Have a look at eBuyer's offerings as well - 17" models start at just under £400 click here. For finance details click here.
Yes, it's always wise to have more than one copy of your photos/other important data stored on a separate drive/media. They will save in whichever format your photo editing software is capable of - the common jpeg format will not be problem. G
Thanks for the link Ex plorer. I like the way that you can pick the bits you want before you get the choices. It just leaves you with a deal in the choice you want. I will go back there again before I choose.
This click here seems a pretty good deal from Comets or am I missing something? Any thoughts on this one. It would see for the price to have all I need and I will be having a look this weekend. If anyone has one I would appreciate your thoughts.
