I am looking for opinions on laptop (of the computing kind) because I'm planning to buy a new one. Yes, the Sunshine Jen IT department is entering the 21st century.
I currently work on a little Hitachi from 1997 or 98, so it won't take a lot for me to upgrade.
This is what I'm looking for: A brand name laptop (I've been looking at Compaq, Toshiba, Gateway) Priced at $800 or less Wireless DVD player I need to be able to plug a floppy disk drive into it. (I have love my floppies. They're holding ten years worth of work). I do a lot of word processing and sometimes work on big ass documents.
I plan to stay in the PC universe (sorry Mac users). I'm not a super tech person---I consider it an accomplishment when I put links in my posts on happyrobot.
Any thoughts on brands, warranties, retailers would be most helpful.
