My preference has always been a desktop PC. Gimmie a keyboard and a mouse and I'm happy. I'm having the same issue I had with my last two laptops...the power connection is becoming loose. It got to the point where I couldn't get juice to my last laptop and I tore it all apart and eventually replaced it. Same thing happening now. Everyone keeps telling me to buy a tablet or something along those lines. I hate...and I mean HATE surfing the web on my smartphone. Idk much about tablets (that's why I'm here) but I would think surfing on them would be roughly the same, just a bigger screen. I did see the tablets with the keyboard dock...wondering if that's the way I should go. I'm running Windows 7 on both the PC and Laptop and want to stick to that OS. Do the tablets plug in to charge the way a cell does or the way a laptop does? I've never had any issue with my phones not getting juice but I've had issues with my last three laptops over time. I use my latop and PC for the same things...surf the web, to follow walkthrus for games, videos on YouTube, I use Word a lot on both machines, my firends come down and play poker on the play money sites etc... Am I stuck in a laptop-PC world, or is there a device out there I should be taking a look at? Going to hit up Amazon and take a look and do some homework on my own.
