    After fighting with my pc and internet connection, everything I had on my pc (music, favorite website links, settings, etc.) came back so I now have a working PC again. However, I still have no way to load all of my games onto it. I may still upgrade for that.

    Erica, there's always an excuse for a geek to get new gear.

    Go for it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the music portion you can burn a MP3 dusk and that can hold a vast number of music files the most I got on one was 250 or use nero to do a back up

    if you have a dvd burner you can transfer that way also.
    Network is other way to, just enable file sharing.

    I like Number 3 the best.

    Notebook #3) Toshiba Satellite for $599.99 (after 339.99 instant savings, original price $939.98; Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology with Intel Core Duo Processor; 512 MB DDR2 memory; 80 GB hard drive; 15.4" TruBrite Widescreen; CD/DVD-RW) at Best Buy;

    Re: New Notebook PC (And Other Purchases) Needed

    I was thinking the same thing but I left off one thing about this one:

    Notebook #2) Toshiba Satellite for $449.99 (after a $230 instant savings, original price $679.99; 512 MB DDR2 memory; 80 GB hard drive; built-in 802.11g wireless) also at Circuit City;
    15.4" TruBrite Widescreen; Built-in 802.11g Wireless

    I still may get # 3, though.

    Just noticed something about #3. It only comes at that price as part of a bundle package with a printer. I don't need another printer. To get #3 without the printer, it will cost me $939.98

    If I go with #2, I get just the PC, which is all I need and an affordable price, $449.99, which comes with an Intel Celeron M Processor 410. Same PC, just a different processor.

    Hi Erica,

    One consideration that you might want to include: tech support. Here's an interesting news bit on a survey conducted of tech support provided by major computer manufacturers:

    Tech support has never been a problem. I am usually able to solve my own problems or take it back to the store I bought it from, or to the local MicroCenter.

    Re: New Notebook PC (And Other Purchases) Needed

    I'm back. It appears I'm going to be getting one of the following 2 for my birthday (after complaining constantly about the problems with this PC LOL).

    Notebook #2) Toshiba Satellite for $449.99 (after a $230 instant savings, original price $679.99; 512 MB DDR2 memory; 80 GB hard drive; built-in 802.11g wireless) also at Circuit City; or

    Notebook #3) Toshiba Satellite for $599.99 (after 339.99 instant savings-a free printer which I don't need, original price $939.98; Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology with Intel Core Duo Processor; 512 MB DDR2 memory; 80 GB hard drive; 15.4" TruBrite Widescreen; CD/DVD-RW) at Best Buy.

    I saw one at Best Buy with the features of both #'s 2 & 3 so it appears I'm getting the best of both worlds with an 80 GB hard drive. I told the salesman what I needed and wanted and he had one that fit my needs. The only problem is that the sale ends tonight at 10 PM CST and I want to see if Circuit City has the one with the Intel Core Duo Processor, for a cheaper price.

    Oh I forgot one thing...either PC IS IN FACT upgradeable to Windows Vista Media Edition (for my games and music)

    Congratulations, Erica, let us know what the final result is. I love my Toshiba Satellite, not as much as my Blackberry though.

    LOL It's gonna be a close tie for me because I'll be on the pc almost as much as I am on the BB.

    I was due for an upgrade anyway. This one is 19 months old anyway (LOL didn't think it would last this long).

    Re: New Notebook PC (And Other Purchases) Needed

    ok just one word... i do have vista the lastest beta released to microsoft teams... AND... i do recomend you STICK TO XP until the first service pack is ready for vista... major changes are cosmetic and software enhancements that actual software doesn't even use, need or support and so are the drivers to many of the gadgets out there vista will not support em all at release time as always...
