    Sammy you’re not a graphic designer stop being silly wasting your money on Apple products especially computers and laptops

    Serious question...do you use your pc for anything besides surfing the internet? If not, only reason to get a $1400 computer is to show off.

    Should Sammy replace card or go 100% with newer Laptop (using now)? Got laptop connected to ext monitor, mouse & KB

    Or... just buy new Desktop... Maybe even an Imac
    Computers are so cheap now. Don't even bother. Get something that meets your needs or beyond and it'll last for years

    Slickdeals is a great for deals. I can take a look. If you're just a basic user a laptop around 500 ish or so is fine.

    If you like a desktop that's cool too, just need to know

    hubie

    looked it up... from website

    The PerfectStroke key system was developed from our desire to put the best parts of a laptop’s keyboard into a more comfortable, full sized keyboard to create an unforgettable typing experience that makes every key stroke smooth, comfortable, and quiet. This system uses the scissor-key mechanism found on laptop keyboards for an improved key feeling and faster response time. To create this affect, micro-scissors are added under the keys to help control the force and travel of the keystroke.

    Key travel is the vertical distance required for each keystroke, or how far down the key moves when you press it. Whereas laptops typically have a key travel of 2 to 2.5mm, research shows that a longer key travel improves your typing comfort and requires less force. So, we gave PerfectStroke a key travel of 3.2mm. If, like me, you like the feeling of your laptop’s keyboard, but wish it were more comfortable, you will love our keyboards with PerfectStroke.
