For surfing the net and games, the tablet is the one I use the
most. However, for serious multitasking, nothing beats a
desktop pc or a laptop.
Out of all the laptops I have used, I am very satisfied with
my HP ProBook 4230s that I got for almost US$450. For the past
1 1/2 years, it is very reliable and fits my needs. It runs on
Windows 7, has an Intel i3 and a 350 GB hard disk. Added an
additional 2 GB RAM to make it 4 GB.
No problems so far and the only thing that I have needed to
replace is the battery. Internet explorer and bluetooth does
not work but it is not that important. I still have Google
Chrome, wifi connection and USB ports.
If I need to get another laptop later on, I will consider the
1. Lenovo (heavy duty and the original IBM)
2. Toshiba (although expensive, excellent performance)
3. HP Compaq (specifically the ProBook series)
4. ASUS (good performance)
Please feel free to suggest other good brands and models.
