  1. Hi guys

    Like the title, do you guys have any good suggestions about a good laptop with number pad on large keyboard. Because my boss want me to choose a decent laptop for him(generally business use). Also not Not too expensive but powerful.

    I heard HP have some problems with the hardware?

    Thank you all :)

    Hi there,

    You should check out the Sony Vaio EB. It has a built-in numeric pad and an edge-to-edge isolated keyboard. It is also affordable at $799 and has a fast processor (2.13 GHz Intel Core i3-330M). You can check out the full specs of this laptop using a tool called PC Scout.

    What do you think of this laptop?

    Hi there,

    Upon further research, it seems that the battery life on the Sony is up to 3.5 hours. Have you considered purchasing a battery pack to make it last much longer? That could be a good option since you like all the other features. What do you think?
