Bob, I've been very pleased with my Asus laptop. Very fast, runs cool, no problems. And it was a refurbished model from Tiger direct. I would have bought new, but the model I wanted was no longer available. The refurbished one was around $600. Note also that a recent Asus laptop was highly rated in the last issue of Consumer Reports. Don't have the issue in front of me, but I'll look it up if you're interested.

I grew to hate my stupid old HP laptop. It ran hot, was slow, and the hard drive failed after 18 months. I'd never buy another hp product.

Cheers,
Alan

Thanks a lot, everyone!

As I was sitting down here this morning, I was expecting to see 25 prank posts from Mark, (not that I wouldn't have enjoyed them).

John, thanks for the link to the Asus.

Lenovo was on my look-list, but not Asus.

I will investigate both now, thanks to all of you.

My only concern is that the first sounds Italian and the second sounds Greek. We all know that neither of those countries should be allowed to manufacture anything, except high-priced suvlaki rotisseries, espresso machines and paninni presses. The real expense comes from having to build a bed/bath addition to your house for the service rep to live in.

It's worse than that, Lenovo is Chinese and Asus is Taiwanese. It's like a cold war of laptops!

So, once again, I am forced to choose between a country that would poison my dog, or a country that would see him as a tradable food commodity. Hmmmmm? That's gonna be a tough one (or maybe not, if they tenderize over there).

According to China, both PC's are from the same country. According to Taiwan, they're not.

Boy, this is confusing.

As usual, I'll probably make my final decision based on color and texture.

Seriously, though, you guys have now got me completely focused on one or the other. That sure has made it easier, thank you.

You still could have signed it just "Freddy."

Bob Gets Icky:

Fred, it was not doled out to us in a limited supply at birth. Everyone gets to make as much of it as they desire and everyone deserves to get it and give it. One of those people wipes your ass everyday (unless Ian and Alan are trying to watch you poop in the woods). He's the same guy that's in your bathroom mirror.

OK Bob, you got me. The real reason is I was saving the extra love for Ken's deer 'cause all they're getting is wrapped in bacon.

Fast Freddy

Used to be that every from of creative thought was about sex and death.

Based on our usual thread derailments, now it's sex and bacon (ew!), or is it death and bacon?

Let's see, atherosclerosis and sex? Nah, that can't be right.

Atherosclerosis and death? Yup, yup. I think that's it!

Or is it a syllogism? Sex = bacon; bacon = death, therefore...?

I think I know that one.
