I have a HP Pavillion dv9000. It heats up so fast and it's really slow. What would be a good laptop that has at least an Intel Core i3. I was Thinking of AlienWare M14* laptop. I don't want to use it as a gaming laptop, but it has good graphics and Intel Core i7. Do you have any other ideas for a good laptop? The price doesn't matter.

This is beyond a simple question with a complex answer. but you are only looking for recommendations. So here are a couple of things/ series you might like to look into.

-Macbook Pro

-Alienware Series M18x

-Mabibal Satori Series

-CyberPower Xplorer Series

Thanks, I'll defiantly check the prices and information on those laptops.

Did you actually just recommend an alienware? Wow.

Sense price wasn't specified I figured I would throw in their best laptop.

(May 29 '12 at 15:48) thelearningcomputerist thelearningcomputerist's gravatar image

As I said on another question, an Lenovo ThinkPad T530 found here: http://goo.gl/YRsWX, is best for everyone. It's cheap, affordable and these ThinkPads are made for business. These will take a hit, and this is worth your money.

i recommend a macbook pro, most bang for the buck and u get real value of your investment, on desktop u can build a computer but in laptops its always mb pro for me, dunno what you will choose ultimately its on you!

macbook pro is very nice choice! and u get to learn a different os thus making u more open minded geek in the universe of technology

Do you fancy typing words correctly? 'u' and a lack of punctuation really don't look good.

Also, a MBP is by no means good bang for the buck, they are premium computers with a premium price tag.

(Jul 23 '12 at 12:27) Tim Fontana Tim%20Fontana's gravatar image

upgradable and compared to other pc laptop hardware its still better, has better resale value, handles specs a lot better than windows stuff, on laptop u would want best thing, btw please do not force correct my english as i m not a native eng speaker, i try my best to write good, u shud allow room for that!

trust me dude i ve bought 2 laptops n each day i ve regretted that i wish i had thrown money for a single mb pro, would have been much better experience, its just my experience and opinion. On laptop side apple "does" make great stuff!

(Jul 23 '12 at 12:30) bharatkumargupta bharatkumargupta's gravatar image

It is not upgradable. For the price, specs are less.

I'm not correcting anything, but as much as you are not fluent in the language, you've proved you can write 'you' - using 'u' instead makes people much less likely to value your opinion.

If you have little knowledge of a language, use what you do know to the best of your abilities. Just a tip for you.

(Jul 23 '12 at 12:32) Tim Fontana Tim%20Fontana's gravatar image

same company makes hw & sw, which is good for a consumer and or pro, OS X really handles specs pretty well and i can tell you that u can do a lot on mb pro with pro applications, dude come on you can dislike my opinion but thats rude the way you are correcting me, it doesn't feel welcoming if people start reacting like you on forums like these, we shud have a little room too! peace! i try my best lets see how much hindi can you speak?

and i would never recommend headache to a laptop buyer hence i suggested him the mb pro which is really a nice laptop!

(Jul 23 '12 at 12:37) bharatkumargupta bharatkumargupta's gravatar image

I'm not claiming to speak Hindi. However, if I did, I would type words to the full, as opposed to using things such as 'u'. That is the point I was making, people will take you more seriously if you do so.

The thing is, you cannot claim that any Apple Product has bang for the buck, can get far more power, for a lot less money. And yes, you can do a lot, but you can do a lot more on a Windows computer, there are far more available applications.

(Jul 23 '12 at 14:57) Tim Fontana Tim%20Fontana's gravatar image

spelling, if you're not a native speak is alright, but using "u" instead of "you" is just laziness, and yeah Macs aren't worth the apple stickers you get in the box

(Jul 23 '12 at 15:00) pjob797 pjob797's gravatar image

ok lets have a chat in Hindi shall we? then we ll see who is lazy to learn and who is more open minded, dude look at your age and teach yourself some manners before you correct others, same goes for your little friend tim fontana

mods - please observe the responses from both these guys & take necessary actions! This is just intolerable!

(Jul 24 '12 at 06:04) bharatkumargupta bharatkumargupta's gravatar image

i recommended him apple laptop bec unlike you i have an experience of buying 3 pieces of crap windows pc, there is not a single oem in windows world that knows how to do a laptop, on the other hand great service comes as part of package too, nice materials, complete peace of mind, u are free to buy 13 pieces of crap n waste money, i would go for quality n experience, on laptop side i would always recommend mac, u really get what u pay for and that thing has life so it pays off the investment!

(Jul 24 '12 at 06:11) bharatkumargupta bharatkumargupta's gravatar image

We are not lazy to learn, we have not given the opportunity. I have no need to learn Hindi because it will not serve we any use in life.

Also, you seem to be completely ignorant to what I am saying. I am not saying anything about that, I am saying that you should be making effort to use the words that you do know correctly, for example 'u'

The mods will observe this if you wish, but we are not being unpleasant, we are simply recommending that you make a little more effort in the way you write, because, I can tell you for sure, if I knew only a limited amount of your language, I would at least, make an effort to type the words fully.

The thing is though, some people are so stubborn, they can't take advice, they take offence at the smallest amount of constructive criticism.

Because if you think I'm all that bad, explain to me then, how you think it was that I have obtained over 13,000 Karma in my time here, and look at all my high scoring responses and the way they are written. It's not what you know that counts, it's the effort that you make with said knowledge.

Saying that you know little of a language, and there for you are not going to make as much of an effort is like saying that you're not very good at driving, and therefore, are not going to pay attention to the road or use what knowledge you do have.

I didn't say anything about any of that, I'll admit that a lot of Windows laptops have issues, but there are many that work just as well. If you spend the same amount of money on a Windows laptop, as you would on a MBP, you would get higher specs and a lot of that. Sure you'd be missing out on the premium design, but the thing is, that's not what everybody wants. You're entitled to your own opinion, as am I to mine and all the others on here, to theirs.

All I said to disagree with your point was that Apple computers are by no means bang for the buck. I didn't say that they were not a good choice.

So please, calm down, and actually read what I am saying properly, instead of going off on a tangent about how I don't speak Hindi, because it has no relevance in this conversation.

yes u are right i m arguing with a 16 yr old, i shouldn't had done that in the 1st place, u are stupid, we ll talk when u ll grow up!

its people like u that ruin it for the rest of us, u act like a gatekeeper, in real u would earn zero respect from me, it also shows how you are brought up and how u behave with others.

for me a language is not a barrier, its you who is creating a mess here by forcing the way u want this conversation to be, hey kid i m not adhering to you, now cry n go home n learn some manners! try that again in hindi i ll salute you! u are disrespectful!

(Jul 24 '12 at 08:44) bharatkumargupta bharatkumargupta's gravatar image

If you think I'm being disrespectful above, you're a fucking idiot. I'm pretty sure that most people on here who know me can vouch for me. The thing is though, I was offering you some advise, you don't speak the language natively, so I am offering you some advise to improve how people will look at the way you communicate. Pjob, another user, agrees with me.

I quite frankly don't care what respect I have from you, when someone gives me advise, I consider it, rather than telling them that I don't care what they are saying.

Once again, you're on about my inability to speak Hindi, but quite frankly, I don't care. I speak 3 languages, French, English and Spanish. I have no interest in learning Hindi, it will not serve me well in life, in anyway nearly as much as the three languages that I do speak have done.

You're also bringing age into account, but I think many here will vouch for me in saying that up until now, I have been far more mature than you.

I give up on you, you're not worth trying to help. You think because you're not native to our language, that you don't need to make an effort with what you do no of it, but if you want any respect, I suggest you try harder.

Finally, if you're going to argue with someone, why not reply to them with something relevant, instead of sticking to the same point, that has no relevance.

The best laptop to get is a desktop, laptops, from my personal experience have a good working life-span of 6 months and a life span of 2 years of trying to kill your self because its super slow and everything starts breaking and since its not completely broken, except for 85% of it there is no real reason to buy a desktop that will actually work well, longer and you can upgrade.

hHis rant is long and semi unrelated but buying a laptop is kind of a bad long term investment and for the $1.5k to buy a mac book pro you can build a good desktop instead, and you can fix it as time goes on, much easier and cheaper than a laptop.

I'm with you on this. If you absolutely have to have something portable then a smartphone or equivalent synced with your desktop is usually more than adequate. I have a dirt cheap and aging netbook (running Windows CE5!) for such needs while keeping my 8 year old desktop updated and running perfectly.

(May 09 '12 at 12:00) Cornelia Cornflake Cornelia%20Cornflake's gravatar image

I need a laptop because i am traveling a lot and need applications, so I can't use a smartphone.

(Jul 23 '12 at 12:19) fanto fanto's gravatar image

In my experience, ASUS makes some pretty powerful budget laptops. I know mine has a sweet price/performance ratio. I'd recommend them

If you want a laptop for gaming- Alienware M18x Gaming Laptop and if you want for just surfing on internet then go for any cheap Google Chrome Book

answered May 28 '12 at 02:47

Chromebook? Lmaoooooo. I wouldn't fare recommend that. And it's not cheap too. In fact check on eBay or Amazon or even Craigslist for a ThinkPad T60. I'm not partial to ThinkPads, I own mostly Dell, HP, and Apple. A t60 is by far more powerful, more economical than a Chromebook, in my honest opinion.

lol for browsing instead of chromebook go for ipad, ipad is content consumption device, chromebook doesn't stand a chance against ipad
