Ok, so currently I have a Gateway NV53, about 6 years old, it worked great... Tonight, I was stupid, and took it apart.. Well that wasn't the so stupid part. I've been working on computers for 15 years, so it's not like I was completely clueless. Well, I took a part of the base off, and reached down to disconnect a wire from its socket and for some reason the tiny wire just snapped off, and is now completely unusable, and as it was the monitor power wire it's all but useless. So, guess it's a good a reason as any to look into buying a new laptop... I don't really game on it a lot but I do play some very basic text and java games, just mainly youtube, movies, things like that at 720p. Would prefer to get a 1080p viewable laptop but it's not that important. Basicaly, I want a cheapish lappie, that can do the job of my old one. So, would I be better off buying some netbook, or chromebook or something. Or, would I even be able to find a viable solution in a laptop? Problem is, I have no clue what to get. I got this one from bestbuy many years ago, but I really don't pay much attention to the laptop area as I don't heavily do work on them, so was hoping someone else could give me some options/opinions.
